On dec 26th she was arrested for criminal tresspassing and the cops als thought she was on drugs. She left the property and was standing by my car when she was arrested. She was bailed out the next day. On the 30th someone tried to break in and she injured her foot and I she went to the ER. On Jan 2nd she had a terrible migraine and went to the ER again. Her court date was on the 3rd of Jan. She couldn't barely walk or breath because the cops bruised her ribs when she was arrested. We called the court and told them we would be late and why and they said OK. Long story short she didn't make it. That night she went to the er again and was invo committed to mental health. She spent 9 days and after being released on a civil commitment went to the court house to get her warrant figured out. They said they'd give her medical paperwork to the judge but the warrant was still active. She was arrested a few days ago. Shes in the medical unit and I'm not sure if shes gteeing her meds she needs. So, her first court date is in a few days, will she be released then being that she has a civil commitment to make her appointments and has proof that she was unfit to appear and sick?
The Judge will consider many factors including the any past failures to appear at court proceedings. The judge will not necessarily adopt the doctor's conclusions that she is unfit to appear. Competency in criminal proceedings is a more complicated process with a higher standard. An attorney will be best suited to present arguments to the Judge in favor of recalling the warrant and allowing her be released pre-trial. If competency proceedings are likely, an attorney will also be best suited to move the court accordingly. In short, it is possible that the judge will, or will not, release her in a few days. There are more factors which the judge will take into account in making that decision. In any case, an attorney will be most able to represent her at the detention hearing and the following hearings. If sheare unable to afford an attorney, the court can appoint a public defender.
