What Is a Bond Hearing?
A bond hearing is when the arrested party has a hearing with a judge to determine if he/she can be released “on bond,” or in other words, on bail. The judge will set the bond amount that is to be paid to the court to ensure that the defendant returns for trial. If you are released on bail, you pay a bondsman to post your bond to the court, and after your trial, that money is returned. There are many factors that determine if someone is eligible to be released on bond including the bond amount one has to pay. Because this process is complicated, it is strongly advised to secure an experienced Portsmouth bond hearing attorney, like those at Kozak, Davis & Renninger to help you.
Factors the court will consider when setting a bond include:
- The seriousness of the charges brought against you
- Whether or not you pose a danger to the community
- Whether or not you are a flight risk
- Previous criminal history
- Any history of violence
