- Drug Crimes
Drug crimes are very common in Volusia County, Florida and Prosecutors are tough on anyone accused of a drug crime, These types of crimes include more than just illegal drugs, they can include any drugs being sold, manufactured, delivered, and possession of a drug illegally and with intent to sell. Marijuana is only legal for medical use by people who have a current Florida Medical Marijuana Card so please keep that in mind.If you are arrested for a drug crime, you may be able to post bail, but the amount owed depends on a few factors, such as how much drugs you had on you and what kind, arrest record, and court appliance history will be considered when setting bail.
Florida follows the 0.08 percent BAC rule. This means that you are not legally allowed to drive if your blood alcohol content is 0.08 or above. The higher your BAC, typically charges and punishment will be worse. An example, if it’s your first-time offense and you were caught driving with a BAC of 0.08, you may only have to pay some fines, your license suspended for a period of time, and undergo a court ordered treatment program. If it’s your 3rd DUI offense, it then becomes a felony, which comes with more server consequences.
The amount of bail you’ll need to post to be released depends on the charges. For example the driver with the first DUI with a BAC of 0.08 percent and no property damage, the bail amount can as low a $100, but for a third DUI offender, bail could be as high as $10,000 or more in some cases. Always remember that in all cases arrests record and court appearance history will be considered when setting bail.
- Assault or Battery Crimes
Assault or battery charges vary drastically depending on the situation. Many things matter when it comes to setting a bond in these cases and sometimes you will have to see a judge before getting a bond. The most common situation where you will have to see the judge is if you are charged with a domestic assault / battery, and that means you know the alleged victim personally. Aggravated assault or battery is more severe because it either includes a weapon or another aggravating factor that increases the severity of the alleged crime.
Since the crimes can vary, so does the bail. For the simple assault or battery example, you may be charged with a misdemeanor, which could come with a bail as low as a $100. On the other hand, with aggravated assault, or battery you may be charged with a felony and a bail of up too $10,000 or more in some cases. Always remember that in all cases arrests record and court appearance history will be considered when setting bail.
