    Bond Hearings

    If you are charged with a crime and are arrested, you will be brought before a magistrate (a judge who does procedural duties), and he or she will set bond. This initial bond amount is based solely on what the police are saying about you and your record, and usually applied to a bond amount schedule. This is the amount you or a bondsman will have to put up before the jail will release you pending trial.

    Sometimes, this bond amount is too high given the true facts of the case and your standing and ties to the community. If you or your loved ones retain an experienced criminal defense attorney such as Matthew Arnold, you may be able to get the bond amount reduced to a level that you can afford.
