How do I get a Bond Reduction in Tarrant or Dallas County?
For a bond reduction in Tarrant or Dallas County, you will have to hire a Tarrant or Dallas Criminal Defense Attorney. You have the right to challenge the bond amount in court but it takes a criminal defense attorney to do this. The attorney will have to file a motion to reduce the bond or file what is called a writ of habeas corpus. The attorney will also have to talk to the prosecutor that is assigned to the case and then also go before the presiding Judge.
As said before you have a right to challenge the bond amount and ask for a bond reduction. The court ultimately decides whether or not to grant the bond reduction. There are several factors the court must consider when they determine the appropriate bond amount.
Usually the most important factors include:
- The crime/offense
- Criminal History
- The potential danger to the public and specifically the victim
- The flight risk of the defendant and the probability the defendant will appear in Court
- The financial situation of the Defendant and the ability to pay the bond.
