Thank you for using JustAnswer!

 

Yes, a bond is possible. What it will be is up to the discretion of the judge or magistrate who conducts the arraignment.

This is a federal case, so is this information still adequate for a federal charge, and can your lawyer get you a bond if the magistrate does'nt.
Expert:  JB Umphrey replied 7 years ago.
If the magistrate sets a "no bond" then the lawyer would have to appeal to the district court judge in any effort to get a bond.

Can you recommend a good federal lawyer in the Wilmington or Durham North Carolina area.

So does a person's record have an effect on them getting a bond for a federal charge.
Expert:  JB Umphrey replied 7 years ago.
Absolutely. One's criminal history (or lack of one) is a factor used in making a bond determination.
