My son has been arrested and put in jail for a criminal vehicular

This answer was rated:

My son has been arrested and put in jail for a criminal vehicular operation charge. He sees the judge on Tuesday. What can we do to help him? He is 25
Welcome and thank you for your question!

I am sorry to learn of your family's circumstances. You can go to court on Tuesday to be present during the arraignment and you can post whatever bond the judge sets. You can also assist your son in hiring a local criminal defense attorney to represent your son at future court dates.

Tuesday's hearing will just be for reading the charges to your son, setting bond, and learning if he will hire an attorney, represent himself, or ask for court-appointed counsel.

I know that this is not what you wanted to hear but you deserve a candid answer. I wish very much that I could offer you an answer that was more favorable to your circumstances, but the law seems to be pretty clear. Had I been able to provide an Answer which might have given you a successful outcome, it would have been my pleasure to do so.

I hope you understand.
