1 Attorney now or later on Fri Jul 20, 2018 8:29 am

Arresto Menor
My wife and I live in Australia and my brother in law has been arrested for a crime supposedly committed in 2011. He is now in Goal/Jail and has a bail set at 180000 pesos. Family over there are trying to get him out and have two alternatives as to paying bond. I can supply full bond and don't know how they get the set requirements like all the photo,s etc. Also should a private attorney be engaged straight away and he can arrange to meet bail conditions (we will still pay bond ). We are very confussed being so far away, but any advice to assist is very much appreciated. Thanks in advance Very Happy

Get a lawyer immediately so that he can review the case and check the bail amount on said case. Make sure that he is a defense attorney specializing in criminal law.

This is what I have tried to explain to them but they have been getting conflicting advice even from attorneys, who said to get him out first then talk ??? They have now paid 40000 pesos to bail bondsman but not completed requirements, so can they reverse that and use the money to engage attorney first as stated above ???

Why did they engage a bondsman when you said that you were willing to put up the entire bond?

Paying the bond in CASH just entails going to the Office of the Clerk of Court, getting photos and prints taken to be appended to the data sheet, filling up the form, paying the amount, and waiting for the Order of Release.

Yes not sure why they went to a bondsman, I think emotions got in the way. All sorted now, we managed to get bond paid in full, so that it is refundable at the end Smile Now they have talked to an attorney, and that is their next challenge, to be able to come up with those fees. I can only hope that these fees are awarded as costs if successful defence of the charges !!!!
Thanks for all the advice and help
