Your right to bail is guaranteed by the 8th Amendment of the US Constitution. As a result, it’s possible to obtain an SCV Bail Bond for someone who has been arrested on a probation violation.
What Is Probation?
Probation is when someone who has been convicted of a crime is released from imprisonment and subject to a period of good behavior. There are usually a set of conditions that a probationer is required to meet in order to remain on probation and not be sent back to jail. These can include abstaining from drugs or alcohol, avoiding certain places or people, obtaining employment, and others.
When someone is found to be in violation of their probation, whether it’s because they were arrested again or failed to meet other conditions of their probation, they’re usually subject to a probation hearing.
At a probation hearing, a judge will review the probation violation warrant and decide whether to set bail or not, or to set additional conditions for the defendant’s release.
Probation violation hearings can be complex, and it’s a good idea to have legal representation to help you out.
Probation Hearing Consequences
As mentioned, a judge will decide whether or not to set bail at a defendant’s probation hearing. Often, people think that violating one’s probation is a one-way ticket back to jail. While this can certainly be the case, it isn’t always what happens.
Getting Out of Jail
It’s possible to get a bail bond if you’re arrested on a probation violation. As a matter of fact, it can be of enormous benefit when it comes to looking for legal representation. Outside legal counsel can usually be more effective at arguing your case because they have fewer clients than public defenders do.
If you know someone who has been arrested on a probation violation and you want to get them out of jail fast, your best bet is to call SCV Bail Bonds as soon as you can. We can get the bail bond process started right away.
