If it is an aggravated stalking charge, only a superior court judge will be able to set a bond for your friend. You or his family needs to hire an attorney to pursue bond and then begin defending the case and his defense. Judges and prosecutors take these charges very seriously so it is extremely important to show the court and the district attorney the other side of the case. Frequently, they look at the cases as an order was in place, the person violated it, the person needs to be in jail. It takes work to convince them otherwise. If you have other questions, my number is 404-217-6978.
He needs a lawyer. First, if he is in jail, somebody needs to work on his behalf towards getting a bond. Only a lawyer can do this. You cannot practice law. Moreover, there are several recognized defenses to aggravated stalking cases. Most are found in the definition of the crime. Law enforcement officers and magistrates routinely interpret this statute wrong and issue arrest warrants for aggravated stalking in instances that only meet the requirements for a misdemeanor TPO violation. I would be happy to take on this case. I am a former special victims prosecutor from Cobb County. I have prosecuted numerous cases of aggravated stalking. My experience has taught me where to look for viable defenses in these cases. If you would like to discuss my services, call me or have him call me (if he is able).
