Are you awaiting a decision on your conviction appeal? You Could Be Set Free With An Appeal Bond

by | Mar 21, 2022 | Bail Bonds

Most people are familiar with bail bonds, which are used to get someone out of jail while awaiting trial. Many people are unaware, however, that in some cases, a detainee might be released after being convicted. Simply said, if a convicted person has a valid appeal, they may be entitled to obtain an appeal bond and be released until the outcome of their appeal.

Making an Appeals Submission

Before a decision is made on your case, talk to your lawyer about what will happen if you are convicted. They’ll probably talk about why they might want to appeal the conviction. To appeal a ruling to a higher court, there must be a good basis. You cannot file an appeal simply because you disagree with the trial’s outcome or the judge’s decision.

Your lawyer will keep track of everything that is said and done during the lawsuit. While they will work hard to refute the evidence and argue with the prosecutor throughout the trial, they will also take into account anything that could be utilized to file an appeal if you are found guilty. Most of the time, they will have the documentation ready to turn in as soon as they are convicted.

Appeal Bond

Consult your lawyer about the potential of obtaining an appeal bond (also known as a supercedeas bond). If you qualify, make sure your paperwork is in order and ready to submit as soon as possible after you file your appeal. Explain the circumstances to Alliance Bail Bonds, in Daytona Beach Florida, so we can get started on the bail right away.

The judge and court have the final say on how much bail you will need to be released. Unless you have been convicted of a serious charge, such as murder, or if you have previously been convicted of a felony, they will usually allow you to do so. The standard nonrefundable fee for service is 10% of the bail amount.

Additional Conditions

Before you can be released from detention, the court may impose special conditions for you. Wearing an ankle bracelet with GPS so they know where you are at all times is one of them. It’s also possible that you’ll be restricted to merely your house and job. Another stipulation could be that you abstain from drugs and alcohol, with random drug and alcohol testing.

The bail bond agency, in addition to the court’s criteria, may have a few for you. They may request that you contact them on a frequent basis, notify of change of job, address, and phone.

Benefits of an Appeal Bond

An appeal bond will keep you out of prison if you have a compelling reason to appeal and everything points to the higher court overturning the conviction. It is typical for appeals to take a lengthy time to be heard. You don’t want to waste your time in prison when the outcome will show that you shouldn’t have been there in the first place.

Even if you are under surveillance, you will be able to go to work and earn money. You will also be eligible to be promoted as if you were a regular employee. You don’t want to lose your job because you were unable to work due to your imprisonment. Even if you are found not guilty, finding a new employment once you are released may be difficult.

It’s just as crucial to keep your freedom as it is to keep your innocence. If things aren’t going your way as your case draws to a close, call us. We will work with your attorney to ensure that you are released as soon as possible so that you may resume your normal life while your appeal is being processed.
