I can't afford my bond of $2.000..What are my opt?
Chicago, IL |
Son was arrested 5 days ago...He was given a bail of $2,000..He can't afford a lawyer! Has a job at Home Depo...but the longer he sits..He won't have a job to go to.. Is there a Pro Bono Att that will look into this? Not sure what to do???
We need more information. If the judge set bond at $2000, he needs 10% or $200 to bail out. If it is $20,000, then he needs $2000. What is the charge? If you can't afford a lawyer, he can get a public defender and ask that bail be reduced to an amount you can raise. You need to get more information before anyone can give more than very general advice.
