Q: I was wondering will I have a bond when I go to jail and turn myself in?
The felony probation is out of county and I have a warrant for three misdemeanors. Everyone keeps telling me I will still have a bond and just need to report to the probation officer afterwards if I am able to bond out. I’ve never violated and i don’t really know how the process will go so I’m kind of just wondering someone opinion on what they think might happen
A: Why are you asking here if everyone has told You?
Retain a lawyer
A: Every county handles their Violation of Probation bonds in their own way. The rules do not guaranty you a bond on a violation. Some counties issue VOP warrants with bonds and some do not. It is important that you speak to an attorney who practices in the county where the case was originally filed. There is no possible way to tell you what will happen without additional information. That discussion should be had privately with an attorney. Typically there is no reason to delay turning yourself in but there are too many variables to discuss them all here.
