Nashville, TN asked in Criminal Law for Tennessee

Q: If my sister turns herself in for a felony warrant about how much will her bond be? We want to gather the money before

I believe the charge is Theft over 500 dollars but I am not sure because she used someone's debit card to wire herself money out of their bank for drugs. So I'm not sure what that falls under

A: I would recommend you call the Sheriff's Department in the County where the warrant

originated. They should be able to tell you if there is a standard bond amount for the offense.

After surrendering, your sister might have to make an initial appearance before a magistrate

if there is no standard bond.
