Can I get a bond in a child molestation case? Yes! But, you should expect conditions of that bond.
The first question we always get when we are hired on a case is “what about a bond?” It is the natural first question and sets the tone for the rest of the case. Everything is easier when the client is on bond: communication, trial prep, etc. Furthermore, a bond takes some leverage away from the prosecutors who can use continued incarceration as a mechanism to try and force a defendant to plea.
Bond is easier to get in some cases than in others and sex cases can be tough. But, Courts do regularly grant our clients who are charged with sex crimes bond. The court does, however, typically impose conditions on those bonds. I will share a few of the common bond conditions.
There are a few bond conditions that we typically see in these cases.
Bond conditions are not fun, but it is better than no bond. Getting out on bond is the number one goal early in a case, conditions can always be modified after they are originally set. In some situations, the best chance at a bond is to provide the judge with some proposed conditions.
