-- The Legal Defenders, P.C., are pleased to announce important updates to their informative website. They have posted important information describing how Bond Hearings work and how to go about attempting to obtain a low and reasonable bond for a criminal defendant. Every criminal defendant facing felony criminal charges is entitled to a finding of probable cause, either by way of a Preliminary Hearing or a Grand Jury. Important and informative material has been posted which describes the Preliminary Hearing Process and how the Grand Jury process works. Many individuals facing criminal charges wait to hire an attorney after the bond hearing and after the Preliminary Hearing without understanding that even though these are the early stages of the criminal proceedings, they are often critical because they are the first opportunity to challenge the evidence against them and test the strength of the state's case against them. The Preliminary Hearing is the first chance that a defendant gets to confront and question the state's witnesses and preserve evidence so that any changes to testimony can be used to bolster the defendant's defense.
