The longer people stay in jail, the more likely they may say something incriminating. Many people admit guilt simply because they believe they will get out of jail faster. The problem is that they usually do not get out of jail, because they do not have the benefit of a lawyer to help them defend against receiving the maximum consequence of a guilty plea. We have helped a significant number of clients with bond hearings and bond reduction matters.
With a credible, skilled lawyer at your bond hearing, the judge generally takes your bond request more seriously. Since you are paying an attorney, it is assumed that you are not as likely to flee.
A lawyer can often compel the judge to reduce a high bond or to release you on your own your recognizance. Your attorney can gather testimony that will demonstrate the unlikelihood of you fleeing the state.
Without a lawyer to request a bond motion for you, you will be waiting until the public defender gets to your case. Rather than waiting a few days, you could be waiting up to a few months in jail, simply for a bond hearing.
