Don’t Get Cocky…You’re not Free to Come and Go as you Please just yet.

Under the terms of probation, you know very well that there are certain restrictions and requirements.  These could include submitting to random drug testing, avoiding contact with certain spurious individuals, routinely reporting to a probation officer; and above all, don’t get involved in any other criminal activities!

Probation is supposed to be a benefit NOT more jail time.  If you don't uphold the terms, judges can impose the entire sentence that was avoided through probation, adding time for the violation.  No two judges will handle these cases exactly the same way, but one thing is certain – you need a lawyer to advocate for you.

When you or a loved one is faced with a probation violation call veteran San Jose Criminal Defense attorney William Chestnut.  Bill has decades of experience dealing with probation violators in the State of California.  Arrange a meeting at Attorney Chestnut’s office located in San Jose by calling (408) 298-6990.

How does the Bail Bond Process Work?

We all know about it, (preferably not first hand!) but what if we are suddenly faced with this situation in helping a loved one or family member?  In breaking it down to its basics, bail is a financial arrangement that a bail bond agency makes on behalf of an accused criminal defendant.  They act on behalf of the accused.

With a cash bond the entire amount of bail must be paid in cash AND in full.  The money is then held until the case is concluded and is refunded to the person who posted it.  If the defendant posts his or her own cash, then the court may deduct any fines and costs before returning the money.

This is just the first process in successfully defending someone against a criminal charge in the State of California.  The next, most important thing to do is contact San Jose criminal attorney William Chestnut.  Talk to Bill about the entire process from start to finish by calling his office at (408) 298-6990.
