Good morning. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. Since the State now amended the charge and is filing it as a felony, a new bond needs to be set as a result of the charge being more serious and the additional terms and conditions, possible being imposed. I am inclined to believe that Monday or Tuesday he will go before the Judge but if you want an attorney and do not want to have to wait for the PD to be appointed, then private counsel needs to be retained tomorrow morning and they can try and set a bond hearing. I know it is not ideal but until he goes before the Judge on the new felony and bond is set, he will be held. If he used a bondsman previously, they can also appear or submit an affidavit to the court, that they will remain on the new bond, so he can be released even sooner
Yes, my answer still remains.
