Q: My son was convicted of pimping and pandering. We posted bond Friday it was accepted at San Bernardino he is not out
They stated he has a 1275 an he do not, the bails bond called numerous time an check he has no holds. An we he ask they tell him he has a warrant an he has no warrants that he has to see the judge on his original court date Monday. They never call the bails bond or even told the bails bond to come get their bond they stated they are sending over to the court. What should I do they have no reason to hold my son an he has no warrants or holds?
I suspect this will be sorted out on Monday when the court appoints a public defender IF you have not retained a private local lawyer.
Without ALL the facts it is difficult to provide accurate legal advice
A: A 1275 hold is what the district attorney can attach to a bond in court as a way of demanding that they demonstrate a legitimate source of funds that will serve as the bond collateral. I would contact a lawyer who can help work with you and the bond company to put together a 1275 hold bond package. The defense attorney can contact the Da’s office and arrange a meeting with the da sometimes prior to the appearance or the day of the appearance to explain the 1275 bond package. In doing so, the da can then agree to lift the 1275 hold provided they are comfortable enough with where the money is coming from to post the bond. This is often seen in narcotics cases as the district attorneys offices do not want funds from narcotic trafficking being used to bail defendants out.
