A: Unfortunately bonds often have conditions. If it is a drug charge, often times the defendant will be subject to random UA testing at a private probation office as a condition of your bond. Make sure you don't have any dirty drops or your bond could get revoked.

If you have a lot of clean ones and stay out of trouble while the case is pending try speaking to your attorney about filing a motion to amend the conditions of your bond so that you do not have to report as often. It may work if the judge sees that you have been doing a good job with no violations.
