Fighting for Bond During the Coronavirus Pandemic
Many Florida inmates are in jail without bond on a warrant from another county during a global pandemic. This seems like a recipe for disaster, but it doesn’t have to be.
Without bond, inmates could suffer exposure to COVID-19 in a place where it’s almost impossible to practice safety protocols; it’s difficult to social distance, enforce masks, sanitize surfaces and routinely wash their hands in jail.
You may believe such inmates are forced to stay behind bars for coronavirus-related reasons, such as the lack of intrastate transportation between counties, but that is not the case. Inmates in Orange, Seminole, Osceola, Lake and Polk counties depend on professional legal advocates to work towards a solution that can help them obtain bond to get out of jail. As a result, there is no better time to fight for bond on your loved one’s behalf than right now.
Why Do You Need Us?
The Wiseman Law Firm is deeply familiar with the bond procedures in Orange, Seminole, Osceola, Lake and Polk counties and can leverage this knowledge to fight to prevent your loved one from sitting in jail, frustrated and forgotten about, without seeing a judge.
For example, we recently achieved a victory on our clients’ behalf. They were arrested in Orange County on a warrant from Dade County. Instead of waiting for four weeks to get our client a bond hearing in Orange County, we contacted the Dade County judge and prosecutor and convinced them to give our client a bond. Once we did that, we urged the clerk’s office in Dade County to send the bond paperwork to Orange County.
Within 24 hours, our client was a free man.
Our client was thrilled to be out of jail, a place where the coronavirus is easily spread and can be deadly. Don’t let your loved one sit jail when they are entitled to bond but cannot get it because COVID-19 is preventing their transport.
As a reminder, some benefits of bond include:
- Saves time and money
- More means to prepare for trial
- Protects assets
- Provides peace of mind
- More time with loved ones
