Bond Hearings / Arthur Hearings IN MIAMI, BROWARD, AND HIALEAH

Miami Bond hearing and Pretrial release

Under Florida State Law, when a person goes to jail, they have to go within 24/48 hours of arrest before the Judge who then decides if they may have the opportunity to be released before trial, the conditions for pretrial release are:

  • Bail and Surety Bonds
  • Conditions of pretrial release without monetary bonds (PTS)
  • Release on Recognizance (ROR)


    However, if a person is charged with a capital offense or an offense punishable by life imprisonment (Non-Bondable Offenses) such as:

  • Burglary with Assault or Battery
  • Armed Burglary
  • Armed Robbery with a Firearm
  • Armed Sexual Battery
  • Child Abuse or Aggravated Child Abuse
  • Armed Kidnapping
  • Armed Trafficking in Oxycodone
  • Armed Trafficking in Cocaine
  • Attempted Murder with a firearm
  • Murder

  • Among other capital felonies considered to be the most severe kinds of crime under Florida Criminal Law, they may remain detained.


    In case you or your loved one is being accused of committing a non-bondable offense you need to seek a criminal defense attorney immediately to file a motion for an Arthur Hearing, the State must prove the case is “proof evident, presumption is great” which is beyond the “proof beyond reasonable doubt”, and that the person accused is a “danger to the community” in other words the case must be so strong that there’s no need to grant a bond because when the trial happens they will find the accused guilty and be put back to jail. with an Arthur Hearing a person accused of a non-bondable crime can be given a bond so the accused person is free until the pending trial takes place which is a very important aspect to prepare for the trial. It is very important to have an experienced lawyer to fight for your rights and for those of your family members and loved ones so you have the opportunity to have a fair trial and not to remain in jail while the charges are still pending.
