He had his first court appearance today and they set his next court date for 1/27/10. What we are trying to figure out is will the time he is in jail count for anything? Will he still have to come up with the cash bond before they will release him? Will he be released with "time served"? Or will he be released and put on probation to take care of his fines? Basically, is he simply sitting there as "punishment" for failure to appear? $1600 is a lot to come up with if he will be getting out regardless in 2 weeks so why spend it if we don't have to? He knew he had these warrants and should have taken care of them. Any opinions would be greatly appreciated. I understand the actual outcome is dependant on the judge, we are just trying to make an informed decision. Thanks!
