  • Pre-Trial Release


Under the new Bail Reform Act, money bail has been virtually eliminated. If you get arrested or a summons, you are processed and released. If you get arrested in a warrant, you are incarcerated for up to 48 hours. You will be interviewed by Pretrial Services, who will make a recommendation to either release you or detain you pending the outcome of your case. Then the prosecutor will decide if they want you to be detained or released. If they seek detention, you are entitled to a hearing within the next 48 hours. The State has the burden to show you should be detained, unless you are charged with a crime where you face a possible maximum sentence of life in prison. Obviously this is a critical time. Every case depends on its own facts, but Jack Venturi Law got a person accused of a crime—for which he was facing life in prison—released under the strictest level of supervision, including home detention and electronic monitoring (ankle bracelet) plus a special condition of bail. You don’t want a “cut-rate” lawyer. Jack Venturi is aggressive and will use his considerable skills and experience to fight for your release.
