Sacramento Criminal Defense Attorneys Discuss Common Bail Conditions

Wooden gavelIf 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.


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.

Client Reviews
“Mr. Pabla represented me with my DUI case. He has excellent communication skills and always kept me informed. Mr. Pabla made sure I understood the process and my rights. He eased my mind through a very stressful situation. I highly recommend Mr. Pabla.” Gurpreet
“I am so happy with the service that I received from Param S. Pabla. Jarrett did a great job solving my legal issue and I can’t recommend him enough! 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
