What are the Conditions of Release?
There are certain instances where you can be released on bond or bail and the court may institute what is called conditions of release. Certain circumstances may include the following examples. You may be required to have an ankle monitor in order for you not to leave the jurisdiction. You may be required to attend alcohol classes or certain other classes while bond and bail is pending. You may also be required to surrender your passport so you cannot flee the jurisdiction. These conditions of bond are set by the judge, and are in addition to paying or posting whatever bond is necessary.
For recap, sometimes certain special conditions of bonds or release may include the following:
- An ankle monitor.
- Surrender of passport.
- Attending certain classes, such as alcohol classes or sexual abuse classes.
- Or other things that the court finds appropriate during the time the trial is pending.
Certain times involving a victim, the judge may order no contact with the victim while the case is pending. These are called special conditions of the bond or bail. This will be in addition to posting a bail or bond with a sheriff or county court.
