If your friend or family member has recently been arrested for domestic violence, you will be unable to bond them out of jail until they have a hearing before a judge. This hearing is usually done within 12 hours but could take as long as 24 hours after the arrest. At that hearing, the judge will enter a stay-away order from the victim and set the bond of the defendant, based on the facts of the case and the defendant’s prior contacts with the criminal justice system. Once their bond has been set, they can have their bond posted, and they should be released within 4-10 hours.
After their release from jail, they should immediately meet with their criminal defense attorney to discuss strategy and, more importantly, how to not violate the conditions of their release. While they have been released from jail, if they violate any of the judge’s orders, they can be taken back into custody. This will reflect poorly on their criminal case and could result in their detention pending the resolution of the case. For these reasons, it’s important for the defendant to have a frank and serious discussion with their criminal defense attorney.
