Bail Release Conditions in Sacramento Criminal Cases

Before the court releases you on bail, it may demand certain concessions, such as your consent to a warrantless search or psychiatric evaluation. These release conditions are relatively rare, but they can have a large impact on your case, so you will need an experienced Sacramento criminal defense attorney to deal with them.

A warrantless search presents a significant threat to your case, as unlike a drug test, it can reveal items that are either contraband (such as pornography) or legal items that could imply other criminal activity (such as a gun). A search will also have a significant impact on your life: your family’s daily routine will be disrupted, and you may be embarassed in front of your neighbors who see the search. For these reasons, your Sacramento criminal defense attorney will try to secure your release without having to acquiesce to a search demand.

Depending on the nature of the crimes that you have been charged with, the court might also demand that you undergo a psychiatric evaluation. The ostensible purpose of this evaluation is to make sure that you are not a danger to the public. Such a release requirement is usually not used unless you have been charged with a violent crime (homicide, arson, etc.). In this case, there is often little that your attorney will be able to do. You must wait for the evaluation to be completed before you will be released.

“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
