What does insufficient bond mean and how long can a person be in jail for that?
1 attorney answer
When a judge holds a person's bond insufficient, it's because the original bond was not sufficient to get that person to follow the law and comply with bond conditions. The original bond is no longer good, and the person can be held on that case until it is disposed of or until a new bond is posted. Typically a new higher bond is set. If there is no bond set, his attorney can file a motion to set one.
