Customer Question
My son was arrested...

My son was arrested this evening and he said the jail people told him we will not see a judge till Nov. Shouldn't they have a bail hearing tomorrow?

Lawyer's Assistant: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when did this happen?

Douglas county, Colorado

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

No we just found out about the court time and I have never heard of anyone not getting a bail hearing within a day unless on a week end.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

He was arrested for pulling a knife supposedly on a guy which he did not do. No knife was found and they refused to talk to a couple of the people that were there just not outside when it happened. They were at a Jox in the Box where they all work.

Colorado requires an arraignment hearing within 72 hours. Bail will be set based on a bail/bond schedule at the arraignment. Contact the public defender and/or a bail bondsman for assistance.Kind regards,

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
