Domestic Violence Arrest Bond
When someone is arrested for a domestic violence charge in Florida they are required by law to be held in jail with no bond until they see a judge at an initial appearance. A bond is the amount of money the court requires in order for the person to be released from jail. The bond amount for a domestic violence charge usually also has additional conditions of release attached. So it is not just pay money, it is pay money and follow rules also. These additional rules usually include no contact with the victim and no return to your residence. These additional conditions of release can be modified by a judge at a later date if a proper motion is filed with the court requesting the additional conditions be modified. The victim sending a letter to the judge requesting that the arrested person be allowed to have contact with the victim and return to their residence is a waste of time because it is not the proper procedure for modifying bond conditions. No changes to the bond conditions as a result of that letter will occur. The criminal justice system has rules and you have to follow the rules or no changes will be made.
