NEED A MORE AFFORDABLE BOND? CALL FOR FREE CONSULT 24/7.
In Florida, almost every criminal defendant is entitled to a “reasonable” bond except for those charged with a life or capital felony, the person’s release would create a serious danger to the public or the person is likely to fail to appear for court.
The purpose of bond is to ensure that the defendant will appear for all required court dates and to protect the community from potential danger. A knowledgeable criminal defense attorney can file and argue for a Bond Reduction in most cases. Also, if the Attorney is able to show that the defendant has ties to the area, lacks criminal history and doesn’t pose a danger to the community, the court may likely give consideration to reducing the bond to a reasonable amount depending on the circumstances. In some unique situations the court will even set the bond at an ROR (release on own recognizance) that will not require the posting of any money.
