so he gave you a POA and it was signed and notarized?
when you say "they" are you referring to the bank? if so, did they say why they would not accept the form that you got from your friend?
thank you. that is what i thought, but wanted to be clear before i answered.
well, unfortunately, you are at the mercy of the jail's visitation hours. when they have visits you should go and then have him sign it. remember, it needs to be in front of a Notary so you may want to see if the bonds people have one available to go with you.
or you can call the jail and see if they will have a Notary there tomorrow during visitation.
it is the Friday before a holiday, so you are not going to be able to get in touch with his Public Defender.
thank you for that information.
unfortunately, you will need to get the PD on Tuesday, as i am sure they are closed on Monday for the holiday. and then the PD can take it in and get it done.
there is no other way unless you can make arrangements with the supervising CO who may allow you to bring it in during a visit.
sorry. that just won't happen
i wish there were other avenues. and if there were, i would have provided them. unless you can get the supervising correctional officer to allow you and a Notary in then you will need to wait until Tuesday.
