Product Description

Everyone has been talking about the changes to the way judges set bail, but cash bail is not the only way defendants can be held pre-trial. When do prosecutors request bail or a “Dangerousness Hearing”? What are the rules around summonsing witnesses? Can the Commonwealth get a continuance? Should the defendant ask for a continuance? How to explain the situation to the client?

Join this experienced faculty as they answer these questions and much more. Covering the basics and the changes in the statute over the last few years, this program gives practitioners the confidence to go into the next arraignment. Using a hypothetical, the faculty demonstrates different aspects of the hearing process. Make sure you are on top of your game when it comes to defendants being held without bail.
