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.
