Wilson County criminal defense attorney felony

Anyone found guilty of committing a crime may see their life flash before their eyes. Whether you have to pay exorbitant fees, are concerned about how your criminal record will impact your future, or have been sentenced to time in prison, it can quickly feel as if your future is spiraling out of your control. This is especially true for those who have the possibility of facing the death penalty, which is still a sentencing option in Texas. However, one legislator is fighting to abolish it. Depending on the decision made by the government, those found guilty of crimes in 2021 may not face this sentencing possibility.

Senate Bill 188

This past September, a 25-year-old man named Victor Godinez had a virtual hearing regarding the criminal charges that he is facing.

If you have watched crime shows on TV or read about famous criminal cases in the newspaper, you have likely seen the term “bail” with an astronomical dollar amount tied to it. A bail is a form of security given by the accused party that he or she will appear before the court for the alleged crime. Along with bail comes a bail bond or personal bail, each of which requires the accused party to put down a certain amount of money to hold him or her accountable for showing up to a scheduled court date. After showing up to the allotted court date, the defendant will be given his or her bail money back with a small court fee taken out. However, if the accused fails to show up to the listed date, he or she could risk losing that bail amount and face additional charges in Texas.

Bail Bond Violations

When receiving bail, the document will have all of the legal requirements and details enclosed to inform the accused party of his or her rights and restrictions. If the bail is violated, he or she could face a fine of up to $4,000 and/or face incarceration for up to one year. If the act committed is a separate offense, aside from just violating the terms of bail, the prosecuted party will be charged with a separate misdemeanor or felony charge in addition to the violation of the order. The violating party also runs the risk of losing the money that was put down for the bail and depending on where he or she got the bail money as well as how high the amount was, losing bail funds can be detrimental to his or her financial security.
