When a person is arrested and charged with a crime, the court sets bail before the person can be released before trial. In many cases, a court may decrease the amount required for bail or may permit pre-trial electronic monitoring. It is important to have an attorney familiar with the bail procedures guide you through this process. If you would like more information about scheduling a bail hearing, contact the criminal defense attorney of Bickerton Law at (412) 596-8124 for a consultation.
