When will a Judge set bail?

If your friend or loved one is in custody, bail is typically set at a video arraignment. A Public Defender will be present at this hearing and argue for bail or release on our client’s behalf based upon the information the client provides. If they have been charged with a felony offense and are still in custody when the Public Defender assigns the case to an attorney, a motion to reduce bail will be filed on our client’s behalf. A reduction in bail will normally be argued again at the next available hearing.
