Hernando County Jail – Bail Hearings
The Hernando County Detention Center based in Brooksville processes and detains individuals accused of crimes anywhere in the county. For anyone in jail, the only question is: When can I get out? In the vast majority of cases, defendants can post bond to get pretrial release. Unfortunately for many, bail is prohibitively expensive. Instead of paying a bail bondsman to post bail, or bond, hire a defense lawyer instead. At Escobar, Michaels & Associates, our attorneys can argue to the court that your bond should be reduced or that you should be released on your own recognizance (ROR). Your pursuit of justice starts here.
Creating Strong Arguments In Bail Hearings
In Hernando County, as in most Florida counties, judges follow a schedule to determine how much bail someone should be required to pay, based on the specific charge. By paying standard bond, you could tie up thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars, simply to get pretrial release. Worse, you could be forced to stay in jail until your case goes to trial.
Under the United States and Florida constitutions, unreasonable amounts of bail are unconstitutional. For this reason, it is important to understand that standard bond is not required in every case. When the judge sees facts to show why standard bond is not reasonable, he or she can lower the bond or eliminate it altogether. In short, judges will look for reasons why a defendant would not skip his or her trial date.
When you hire our law firm, you can count on us to identify all of the potential facts that could persuade a judge to lower your bond. For instance, if you have children or other family in the area, a job and other ties to Hernando County and the surrounding area, we can show the judge that you are not a flight risk. If we are successful in your bail hearing, you can put the money you have saved toward the defense of your charges, giving you the best chance to achieve a favorable resolution.
