Thank you for the additional information. The charge of attempted murder
is very serious and if he is being held in jail, it is likely a result of no bond being set by the Judge or the thought that he is a flight risk and will leave and go to Jamaica, never to return to answer to his charge, If he is represented by legal counsel, the attorney should be able to motion the court and ask for a bond hearing or some type of pre-trial electronic release, if possible and depending on the facts of the case. In order for the case to go to trial, both the State and Defense need to be ready. The attorney needs to work on the case and review the discovery, along with preparing a defense for your son. Any motions which need to be filed and are relevant, need to be argued before the Judge and can be done between now and the new court date. It is possible that the attorney asked for a continuance, as they were not ready to proceed and the Judge set the case that far out for trial, to allow time to prepare. The attorney can always set a hearing date sooner if something needs to be argued or brought to the attention of the Judge, as well. A fight that leads to an attempted murder charge is very serious, as I stated above, so his ability to be released before trial and not being held, depends on the facts.
