A: It depends. If the two felony charges were caught at the same time, then yes, they should be consolidated into one bond. That being said, if the person was already out on a felony bond, and then caught new charges, they may be ineligible for bond, particularly if the first bond was revoked. It's a little confusing, but the general rule is that a person cannot be out on two felony bonds. I would highly encourage you to reach out to an experienced criminal defense lawyer. Most lawyers on here, including myself, offer free consultations to see how we can help out.
