Is there any way to get someone's bond reduced.

Anderson, SC |

A family member's bond was set high due to him already being on bond when he received a second offense for possession. Is there any way to get the bond reduced. He has applied for a public defender but has not spoken to this person yet. I was told it might be two more weeks before the public defender will contact him. I was also told this case may not go to trial for 8 months and he will have to stay in lock-up until then. I have contacted a rehab. facility which is willing to take him and I hate to wait 8 mos.
