Saint George, UT asked in DUI / DWI for Utah

Q: When the "required bond amount" states that it has been cleared by judicial sentencing/order what does that mean?

A family member was arrested for intoxication over the weekend. They are still on bench probation for a prior incident and no one in the family would bail them out, for good reason. Just curious if the bond being cleared by judicial sentencing/order means that they will be doing more time since it shows that they are still in custody.

A: I would need more detail to answer this question. The court can issue a own recognizance release, and there may be something else holding him. I would think that since the case is new that they are still compiling paperwork. Call a good lawyer to look it up.
