How a Queens Criminal Lawyer Can Help with Bail and Bond Hearings

How a Queens Criminal Lawyer Can Help with Bail and Bond Hearings

Being arrested and facing criminal charges is an incredibly stressful and frightening experience. Many people find themselves overwhelmed when trying to navigate the complex criminal justice system on their own. This is where an experienced Queens criminal defense lawyer can help.

If you or a loved one has been arrested in Queens, New York, having legal representation at your initial bail or bond hearing is crucial. An attorney from a reputable Queens criminal defense firm can argue to the judge that you should be released on your own recognizance or have bail set at an affordable amount.

What Happens at an Initial Bail/Bond Hearing

After an arrest, you will be taken to central booking to be photographed, fingerprinted, and processed. Within 24 hours, you will go before a judge who will decide whether to set bail or release you on your own recognizance (without posting bail). The judge will consider:

  • The severity of the charges
  • Your prior record
  • Your ties to the community
  • The risk of flight if released

A Queens criminal attorney can present mitigating evidence to the judge to argue for lower or no bail. This includes information on:

  • Your employment and financial situation
  • Family obligations such as children or a sick relative
  • Roots in the community
  • Reputation and character references

Why You Need a Lawyer at Bail/Bond Hearings

The initial bail or bond hearing is a defendant’s first chance to argue for pretrial release. According to redditors, hiring an attorney, especially one experienced with the judge, can greatly increase your chances of getting affordable or no bail set compared to using a public defender.

An experienced Queens criminal lawyer knows the judges and prosecutors and understands the most effective strategies for getting bail reduced or a defendant released on their own recognizance. They can also advise if bail can be posted through a bail bondsman rather than paying the full bail amount.

Why Bail Matters

The bail amount set by a judge has significant implications on the outcome of a case, according to analysis on Quora:

  • Defendants stuck in jail awaiting trial are more likely to plead guilty, even if innocent.
  • Jailed defendants have a harder time meeting with their lawyer and building their defense.
  • Defendants in jail awaiting trial face immense pressure to plead guilty to get out.
  • Judges and prosecutors tend to offer better plea deals to defendants who are out on bail.

Additionally, spending time in jail prior to conviction can negatively impact a person’s life by jeopardizing their job, finances, and custody of children.
