I am on felony deferred disposition which was suppose to be resolved in November. There are bail conditions attached to not violate any laws and I did. If I plead not guilty to the new charge, will they offer me bail? I am going to talk to the lawyer of the day about PR release or bail. Meantime this is eating me up emotionally between now and then. My substance abuse counselor is trying to get me into drug court. I have lived here all my life, have a job, have showed up to all my court hearings, am in group therapy, and am living in a sober house.
You must plea not guilty. If you do not, the State will have an easy time terminating your deferred disposition. Bail will be set.
If you have not yet done so, contact the attorney who represents you in the case subject to the deferred disposition. There likely will be a motion to terminate it and impose the "bad" sentence.
Even with a not guilty plea, the State may still move to revoke your bail in the deferred disposition based on the alleged new conduct. However, you mention a lot of factors which will help your argument for PR Bail. I agree with the prior responses that you should contact the attorney you had on the deferred disposition, or if not available, another criminal attorney in the area. That attorney may be able to talk to the DA's office ahead of time regarding the bail situation, which would help your piece of mind. Good luck!
