How We Help with
Bond & Bail
Individuals accused of committing criminal acts need protection immediately,
not just during criminal trial. At
The Evans Firm,
our criminal defense lawyer has helped thousands of people by advocating for their rights and best interests from start to finish.
During arraignment, the judge decides whether to set bail based on the
factors of the individual situation, and how the defendant responds to
questions. Stress and intimidation often causes individuals to misrepresent
themselves during this hearing.
If you are poorly represented in your situation, the judge may set bail
in situations where they would not usually deem it necessary.
Our defense attorney ensures that individuals are fairly represented during the hearing. In many cases, this can help you avoid bail entirely!
Bail is Set in
The first court appearance that individuals make after being arrested is
usually the arraignment hearing, where a judge will review the facts of
the case, ask questions, and determine the bail amount (if any). The judge
has final say on bail and bond in a
criminal case, and that is why it is vital for you to be fairly and accurately represented
during the hearing.
However, there are several special conditions for bail and bond:
Driving with a suspended license
Under 42-2-138 (1) (d) (I), C.R.S., if you are arrested for driving while
your license or driving privileges have been suspended because of a driving
offense conviction, bail is set at $10,000.
Fleeing the scene and intoxicated driving
Under 18-9-116.5, C.R.S. and 42-4-1301, C.R.S., if you attempt to evade
police or flee the scene of an accident while driving under the influence
of alcohol or drugs, bail is set to $50,000.
Distributing illegal drugs/narcotics
Under 18-18-405, C.R.S., if you are accused of
distributing controlled substances or illegal narcotics that fall under the Schedule I and Schedule II subcategories,
bail is set to $50,000.
Cases of domestic violence
Under 18-6-800.3 (1), C.R.S., if you are released on bond in a case of
domestic violence, you are legally obligated to acknowledge and abide
by protective orders made under 18-1-1001 (5), C.R.S.
Revoking release on bail bond
If you commit a felony offense while free on bail bond, the court that
released you on bond has the ability to revoke your release, increase
the bail amount, or change bail conditions.
