Sacramento Criminal Defense Attorneys Discuss Common Bail Conditions
If you face criminal charges, you will understandably hope for a speedy release from jail. It is much better to be out from behind bars when working on your defense. Sacramento criminal defense attorneys can work with you about how to request bail. If you are granted release however, the judge will impose certain restrictions on your release.Non-Compliance With Bail Restrictions
If you do not follow the restrictions imposed upon you, you face re-incarceration with little hope of bail pending trial. Bail conditions depend on the type of charge and your perceived flight risk. Common bail release conditions include the following.Electronic Monitoring
Your bail conditions may require you to wear a tether. As your Sacramento criminal defense lawyers can advise, tethers usually restrict you to your home (house arrest). Sometimes, travel restrictions imposed allow you to leave home but restrict you to a radius as monitored by GPS.Custodians
Courts sometimes also condition bail release upon a promise to stay with or reside with a third party (perhaps a family member). Your Sacramento criminal defense attorneys can answer questions about the responsibility that third party must agree to.No Contact Orders
Often bail release will be conditioned on the defendant refraining from contacting witnesses, victims, or others with a criminal past. If such is true in your case, let your Sacramento criminal defense lawyers handle all necessary contact with these people, if necessary.
