The victim thinks its ok for the inmate to get a bond. However, her family wants to keep the inmate in jail.
The "victim" dropped the restraining order and the lawyer has a copy of it. So, does the "victim" need to be there, if she thinks her family might get to testify against the inmate?
One more thing. The "victim" lied about a lot of things pertaining to the inmates charges. She hasn't given the statement to the lawyer yet. Would it help to have that statement at the bond hearing?
Do you mean the lawyer could put her on the stand at the bond hearing?
