Emergency Bond Hearings in Domestic Violence Cases
If you or a family member is charged with a domestic violence related offense, most prosecutors in Florida do not allow for the automatic setting of bond upon arrest. Generally, it will be necessary for you or the family member to appear before a judge within two hours at which time the Court will consider if there is probable cause stated in the arrest reports to justify the charges and if so, what monetary and other conditions of release should be set.
It is extremely beneficial to have counsel appear at the initial court hearing with a person facing a domestic violence related case. The attorney can argue depending on the facts and circumstances of the case and the person’s background for a low bond. Also, the person will sometimes be faced with the prosecutor asking for more severe conditions of release such as GPS monitoring, home confinement, restrictions on contact with a spouse, significant other and/or children. It is very beneficial to have counsel present at the initial appearance to argue for the lowest restrictive conditions of pretrial release and bond.
Attorney Warren Lindsey and his law firm have a proven record of providing prompt, effective service to persons charged with domestic violence related charges.
