Is a Bail Hearings Lawyer Always Required?

For certain criminal offences, law enforcement agencies and the police have been empowered by the courts to release someone without a bail hearing. This type of release does have specific terms and conditions, just like you would receive from the court at a formal bail hearing.

If the police are doubtful about you appearing in court, have other charges pending, suspect you might commit additional criminal offences, or suspect you might attempt to flee, then they can decide to not offer you this option. Instead, you will have to wait until your formal bail hearing.
