Bond Hearings: No Laughing Matter
The court appearance where a defendant is advised of the charges and the question of bail is addressed is often the arraignment or bond hearing. This often occurs the morning after an evening arrest, and a defendant may still be under the influence of narcotics or other drugs. While this video is an obvious lesson about what not to do to at a court appearance, it may also be an example of what a person under the influence of drugs taken prior to arrest may do … and the consequences that follow. Having an experienced criminal defense attorney in your corner as soon as possible after an arrest may be instrumental in preventing or minimizing arraignment or bond hearing disasters.
