My husband was charged with business related offenses. Failure to pay wages, bad checks, false pretenses.
The Commonwealth claimed my husband "picked up" a new business charge in October 2015 (7 months ago) while on Personal Recognizance and filed a Motion to Revoke Bond. His Business permanently closed 6 months ago. My husband has no reccommit ANY crimes.
We have 2 very little children. Our 5 year daughter has a life threatening medical condition. I work near DC. The kids go to school in Prince William. My husband is local. I relied on him to pick up our daughter when school calls because she is not feeling well. When she gets her symptoms, she be must rushed to the nearest hospital.
We have another son who is 8 and cannot be in the hospital with his sister. We have no relatives in the area. We own our home, we have lived here for 10 years.
Husband was member of local Bar.
My husband expressed concerns over the representation. His lawyer wants to withdraw at Bond hearing. We need another lawyer but Bond hearing is too soon.
What should we do?
Can the Commonwealth revoke my husband's bond?
The prosecution can ask the Court to revoke his bond. The Court may or may not do it, but if the evidence suggests he has committed a new crime while out on bond on other charges, that does not look good.
He obviously needs to be represented by an experienced, successful and respected Virginia Criminal Defense Attorney. If the current lawyer isn't working out, then you/he should hire a different lawyer.
Best of luck to you.
Get another lawyer lined up to take over the case.
