Q: My wife got arrested on FTA 8/7/19. Her Attorney admitted that he was at fault. Why would they still have her jailed?

Her attorney told us both on 8/5/19 her next court dates were 9/9/16 & 9/16/19, we were meeting her attorney on Friday the 9th to go over her evidence. The night before the bondsman showed up to arrest her for the FTA. It's kinda confusing, he didn't arrest her, I called her attorney at home and he told bondsman she didn't have court that day. We were told to be in court that next Monday 12th. They arrested her and hit her with $100,000 cash only bond. Her attorney didn't tell the court that he was at fault and that he told her she didn't have court on 7th. After she was arrested I asked him if he was in court on the 7th and he said no. She's still locked up and he's done nothing in trying to get her out. Why should she suffer over him telling us wrong information. Why wouldn't he just tell the court that he was at fault and she was just going off of what he told her?
