My baby's father is in jail and was charged with a misdemeanor and a felony.  His bond is set at 30K which will be 3K when we go to a bail bonds place.  The thing is we don't have that much to bond him out so would it be possible for him to get out on a PR bond seeing that he has no prior convictions and also because he is innocent he just got arrested hanging with the wrong crowd of people.

Would he need a lawyer or is there a slight chance that the judge could give him a PR bond seeing that he has NEVER gotten in any trouble like this before?  He was adopted and has no family to call on to help him out and I have no family either.  he was the one that worked and paid the bills so I have no way of bonding with him.  Please help with serious inquires only, thank you!!


I'm in Texas and he is in Fort Bend County, he didn't want a court-appointed lawyer cause in texas they don't really help out but if they did then he would request one.  He is not charged with a violent act.

What state are you in?

Well, let me put it to you this way.  Since the (surety)bond was already posted by the judge there's nothing that can be done until his day in court.  Otherwise, figure out a way to come up with 3,000 dollars.  The judge already decided what bond he would issue the defendant.  Had the judge issued a PR bond your child's father would not

talk to his public defender about a bond reduction hearing,

Do they have a pretrial release program? It really all depends on what his charges are. Contact whoever runs the program.
