Few people realize that it is possible to appeal a bail order. Because few people know it’s an option, it seldom happens, but every once in a while a savvy lawyer will suggest this approach if the judge sets an extremely high bail or attaches unreasonable terms and conditions.
It’s important to note that the defense isn’t the only one who can appeal a bail order. The prosecution can also decide to appeal a bail order if they feel that the judge was too lax in their decision. The most common reason this happens is that the prosecution has just cause to believe that the defendant will flee, or if they’re worried that the defendant will do something, such as threatening a witness/victim which could jeopardize the case.
If you’re planning on appealing a bail order, you’re going to need a really good lawyer on your side who has experience with such cases. It’s going to be up to you and your lawyer to provide a great deal of proof that the judge’s bail ruling was not entirely fair. In addition to using examples of bail set in similar situations, you will also have to show that your ties to the community are strong and that there is nothing in your history to indicate that you’re a flight risk.
The most important thing to remember when you’re appealing a bail order is that you need to put your best foot forward. No matter what happens, you need to be on your best behavior. The judge is going to be more willing to reconsider their decision if they see that you’re genuine and responsible. It is also in your best interest to show that you’re currently doing everything in your power to follow the current conditions attached to your bail.
Don’t assume that just because the judge set a high bail, you’re not going to be able to get out of jail. Your best course of action is contacting Newhall Bail Bonds about the possibility of a bail bond. We’re available 24/7 and all consultations are completely free.
There are several reasons you should consider Newhall Bail Bonds, including:
Most people are so focused on getting a bail bond that they fail to think about one very important issue. Once all the paperwork is done and you’ve been released from jail, how are you going to get home. It’s not like the police are going to happily give you a lift.
The best way to get home following being released on a bail bond is to contact someone you love who will pick you up and drive you home. The best time to arrange for this type of transportation is by contacting the loved one as soon as you’ve completed the bail bonds contract. That gives them enough time to get to the jail, but also means you won’t be sitting around waiting for them either.
Some people catch a cab or ride a public bus home. This is a great solution if the jail is close to a bus stop and you live within the city. If you live in a rural area or if the jail is someplace both cabs and buses appear to be avoiding, this may not be a viable option for everyone. Before committing yourself to take the cab or bus, evaluate the neighborhood you’re in and make sure it’s safe for you to stand in the street while you wait for the cab/bus to arrive.
Another option to consider is taking advantage of a ride-share program. This works great since you can arrange to be picked up right at the jail and they will take you wherever you want to be. There are only a few downsides to this system. The first is that you need to make sure you can afford to pay for the rideshare. If you’ve already set up an account and registered a payment method, you should be good to go. If you haven’t, there’s a chance that you won’t be able to pay for the lift and will still be stuck without a ride.
If you’re going to use a rideshare program, make sure that you are already free and allowed to go home before contacting them. Putting the call off may result in you hanging out at the jail a little longer, but increases the odds of the driver showing up and not immediately driving off when they realize that the address you provided was the jail.
