Baltimore Bail Reviews Attorney
Protecting the Freedom of Clients throughout Maryland
When you are charged with a crime, you will receive a court date upon which you must appear before a judge and be made aware of the allegations against you. For people who don't present a risk of fleeing the scene or causing more harm, the judge will set a bail amount so that the defendant can pay to stay out of jail. At Scheuerman Law, LLC, our Baltimore bail review attorney can help you navigate these issues.
Because bail aims to guarantee a defendant's presence at a later trial, the bail costs can be prohibitively high. Many people simply can't afford the set bail and have to go to jail, putting them at risk of further consequences. If this is your situation, don't panic. As your representative, we can help you make the best use of your options so you can protect your freedom.
Other Pretrial Release Options
While a judge has a format that is used for setting bail, they are not required to follow it. If you can make a strong case for yourself, you may not be required to pay bail.
A judge can:
- Reduce the bail amount
- Require only a portion of the bail amount
- Release a defendant with conditions to stay away from certain areas or people
- Release a defendant under supervision
- Release a defendant with a requirement to attend therapy or drug treatment
During bail hearings, your attorney can help you tell your side of the story and demonstrate that you are not a risk for the court. Scheuerman Law, LLC may be able to solicit letters of good character from people you know, raise awareness of your good reputation throughout the community, or show how you are not physically capable of fleeing trial.
You should contact a criminal defense attorney as soon as humanly possible. In these cases, time is not on your side, as many bail hearings occur within 24 hours of a person's arrest. Our firm can help you review your case and make an effective strategy to protect your freedom, no matter how severe the charges against you may be.
