Bail & Conditions for a White Collar Crime

White collar crime is generally not seen as dangerous as violent crime, and for that reason, the way your case will proceed if you are charged with a white collar crime will be noticeably different. A Sacramento criminal defense attorney can aid you in preparing your defense.

Will the Court Consider You a Threat to the Community?

If you have an established job and known ties to the community, the court is not likely to insist on detaining you on bail if you are charged with a white collar or fraud offense. You will not be seen as much of a threat compared to someone accused of a violent offense, so there will likely be some room for your attorney to negotiate on more lenient bail terms or release.

Steps Your Sacramento Criminal Defense Attorney Will Take

Your attorney will most likely proceed cautiously at this initial stage of your case so as not to give too much away, and want to hear what the prosecution asks for. The prosecutor might ask for you to be released on your own recognizance or on an unsecured bond. Your attorney will want to avoid having conditions imposed that restrict your ability to continue at your job or place of business. House arrest could be much more crippling to your livelihood than a high monetary bail. If you anticipate the need to travel outside your jurisdiction, make sure your attorney knows so that he or she can inform the judge that geographical restrictions will be a significant hardship on you.

If you have further questions about how bail will be determined after your arrest, contact the law office of experienced Sacramento criminal defense attorney Param Pabla today to schedule an initial consultation.

He was able to do everything quickly, painlessly, and was ALWAYS available to talk when I needed him. If I ever need help again, I will definitely use him!" Boris
“Param was excellent in my court case of failure to stop at a stop sign. The officer could not see clearly because he was too far away. The officer insisted he could and said he had video but could not produce it at the trial. The officer then asked if he could suspend the trial to go get the video but the judge said he should have had plenty of time to get the video ready beforehand. Needless to say, the judge ruled in my favor and dismissed the case which enraged the officer. Pabla Param’s defense and cross examination skills were excellent and paramount in having the case dismissed. Highly recommended.” T.C.
“My husband and I needed to update everything -family trust, will, medical stuff. Param was really patient -answering all my questions -even when I asked them twice. He wanted to be sure I understood everything we were doing. All docs were sent to us so we could go through them on our own time before anything was finalized. I also liked when we were looking at medical stuff that he had a conversation with me about what I wanted and pointed out some things I didn’t think of.” Debbie
