  • How likely is he to be able to get out on an OR(own recognizance)?

    My fiancé is in jail for his first DUI. Prior he had a perfect driving record and never been in trouble with the law with alcohol. We just moved into town so we haven't been here very long. He has a bond reduction hearing coming up.

    Cassandra’s Answer

    A local atty. who practices regularly in that court is the best person to answer that question. In some courts where I practice, he'd most definitely get an OR. In others, the judge would hold him on a $3,500 bond. With a DUI it is always a good idea to hire an attorney or get a pub. defender.

    That will depend on what the statute of limitations is for a criminal and or civil complaint in your jurisdiction. You can probably meet with a NC atty for free or low cost to get an idea as to what if anything can be done. Search the avvo site for an attorney in your area

    In Ohio, a person can file a petition pro-se to have their property returned once the government is finished using it for evidentiary purposes. In practice, it may be much quicker and easier to have an attorney do it for you,.

    Cassandra’s Answer

    Oh, to be a young naive law student once again......

    The police misinterpret things all the time. Sometimes they even fabricate things. Once day, if you practice criminal law, you shall see.

    My colleagues are correct, this is not the appropriate forum for your hypos. You should save such academic discussions for school.

  • Do they do alcohol testing if they don't mention it on the bail conditions?

    Bail conditions say no consumption/possession of alcohol? Will they test me for that? How would they know if I had a drink at home or not?

    Cassandra’s Answer

    It is or is not a condition of your bail? If it is a condition of bail, then yes they can test you. I know of courts that even use monitoring bracelets. To get a specific answer, ask an attorney in the jurisdiction where you have the charges.
