A: If you are on parole then you may be held on a parole violation until you meet with the parole board. The DA's Office will have a certain amount of time to indict your case depending upon the degree of assault. This could be aware from 15 days to 180 days. At that point, if no charges are filed or indicted, then you are entitled to a reduced bond or PR bond. Contact a criminal defense attorney in your area immediately. Best of luck.
