Federal Hold

Postby Acair » Thu Dec 01, 2016 7:37 pm

Do you know how long the government can hold an individual before any formal charges are actually filed?  My son has some serious charges against him.  They moved him from the county jail on Dec. 4th where he served time for violation of his probation, to another jail where he is being held for federal charges supposedly.  There is no record of any charges as of yet.  I am just wondering how long they can hold him before filing charges..  Thank you.

There are a lot of variables here.  If there is a bail set for your son, of course he can post bail.  If it is too high, an attorney could also file a motion to reduce bail.  Are you sure there are no state charges, such as the violation of probation, holding him in jail?  If there is a detainer for a sentence or vop or warrant of some kind, he will likely not be released even if he does post bail.  Since you believe he was arrested on federal charges, the best thing you can do is contact the office of the federal public defender where he was arrested.
