Two warrants were issued for my boyfriend for FTA for traffic tickets. They picked him up early Monday morning January 22nd and the next day Tuesday January 23rd he was arraigned and a bond was set to $200. I was wondering if he remains in custody how long typically on average will he have to wait for a hearing. The traffic tickrts are for driving without a license so he is guilty. Also when he goes to a hearing how likely is it that he wont have to do jail time? As well as if he doesnt have any money and I want to show up to his hearing to put money up for him for his tickets when they ask if he has any money how do I find out when that hearing date is.He is at the Detroit dentention center.
if your friend was released from jail, he would probably be held pending extradition to another County where he has outstanding warrants.
Your friend should search AVVO and consult with a criminal defense attorney in the counties where he has criminal matters pending.
A Preliminary Exam is held 14 days of the arraignment date. As far as the DWLS (driving without license) citation an attorney may be able to get you a reduced charge. I would need to know more specific information before I can answer the jail time question. The assigned judge will ultimately make that decision. The judge will consider many factors when making this decision. Contact me to discuss further.
