FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Here are some answers to frequent questions that we receive, along with some helpful information.
In some instances, the best thing to do is go straight down to the police station,submit to arrest, and post the bond immediately. This can be done with a straight cash payment or through a bail bondsperson. In many instances, it is actually better to make arrangements with the police to turn yourself in at 6:30 a.m. on a specific morning, and then be brought to the Courthouse which issued the warrant. In that circumstance, your lawyer will have an opportunity to argue your bond amount before a Judge, and in most cases, the bond will be dramatically lowered. Knowing which path to take depends on your attorney’s knowledge of the various courthouses, and the different Judges who will be hearing your bond argument. Some Judges will actually INCREASE bonds after an arraignment. YOU MUST KNOW who you are going to be appearing in front of, the type of case, and the likely outcome of not simply posting the originally set bond. At Soulsby & Levin, we routinely appear in every court throughout Connecticut. We know the Judges who will be sitting on arraignments, and can help you make the decision as to which way to handle this situation.
