My husband was arrested for driving on suspended license and was out on bond for poss. Controlled substance. He had already signed to do 30 days for that. He has 10,000.00 bond now on misdemeanor charge. And surety to surrender
Surety to surrender typically means that the bond company has filed an affidavit to be released from the bond, meaning that they are trying to go off the bond. So, if your husband has a new case, and the bond company surrenders his bond on the controlled substance case, he would have to post bail on both the DWLI and the controlled substance cases. Hopefully, he has an attorney already for the drug charge. If not, it would be a good idea to get one.
By answering your question, this does not create an attorney-client relationship, nor should this be considered legal advice. If you find this answer helpful, please feel free to leave positive feedback.
