If someone refuses to return your property to you, then they are committing a theft. You can call the police. You could also hire an attorney to "politely" ask the person to return the property.

Q: If somebody is out on bond with a curfew and an ankle monitor, how can you get the curfew extended for work?

It's my assistant manager and I'm trying to get him promoted, but he has to have open availability. The case hasn't even made it to superior court yet and may not. His lawyer is court appointed and ignoring him(not returning phone calls or messages). Thank you in advance.

You would need to file a motion to modify the conditions of bond. It’s possible that a prosecutor would consent, but if not, a hearing before a judge would be required.

When a person is arrested, they will remain in jail until they post a bond, or until the case is resolved by plea, dismissal or trial. If your daughter was not given a bond amount, it is probably a good idea to hire a criminal defense attorney to help get her a bond.

If your attorney recently passed away, the Court will almost certainly give you time to obtain new counsel. However, it is important to hire someone as soon as possible. Your new lawyer will likely be able to persuade the Judge to grant some extra time to prepare.
