Bond Hearings Lawyers in Suffolk

Providing Strong Representation & Well-Informed Guidance

If you’ve been arrested, you’re entitled to a bond hearing within 24 hours. A bond hearing takes place in a courtroom before a judge. While it is often a somber occasion, a bond hearing is not a sentencing. During the hearing, the state will present the facts to the court and, usually, a monetary amount is determined as bond.

The intention of a bond hearing is to:

  • Set the bond amount
  • Determine whether the defendant is eligible for bond
  • Lower a current bond if it is too high for the defendant to pay

Bond is usually set when an arrest is being processed, but occasionally bond can be denied. Usually the cause for a bond being denied is that the defendant has been deemed a flight risk or a danger to himself/herself or others. Occasionally, bond will be denied if the court suspects that the money used to pay the bond was obtained illegally.

During your bond hearing, you, as the defendant, will be given the opportunity to prove:

  • You are not a flight risk
  • You have tangible ties to the community
  • You are not a danger to yourself or others
