Setting Bail

Setting bailWhen a Judge sets the amount of bail on a client charged with a crime, the Court looks at several factors to determine the amount of bail. Typically, any statement that you did the crime goes against you, as does any indication that you have no remorse. Worst of all, whether there is any indication that you are a threat to commit another crime. Setting bail depends a lot on you and your behavior and demeanor and retorts, as well as the alleged crime. Be reminded, if you are arrested, stop talking to the cops, bbecause anything you say can affect bail. Tell the arresting officers that you want a lawyer, then say nothing else until your lawyer tells you to talk. Anything you say or do can be used against you.
