An experienced criminal attorney can request that the court release you without bail, saving you thousands in fees. An “Own Recognizance” release is basically a promise to appear in court without any bail amount.
Attorney Anthony Arzili has been able to secure many “O.R.” releases and has saved clients thousands. Attorney Anthony Arzili can also refer you to a bailbondsman that is trustworthy and will charge you thousands less.
An “O.R.” motion is made by your attorney. Some important factors that your attorney will point out are:
- Your ties to the community, i.e. own a house, how long you lived there, how long at your job.
- Criminal record. Have you missed any appearances in court before? Do you have any failures to appear?
- Charge in present case. How serious is the crime? Does your release pose a risk to the community/victims?
