As defined by Canada’s laws, "bail" is a judicial interim release, paid to release the accused pending trial unless the Crown Prosecutor shows cause why the accused’s ongoing detention in custody is justified. Bail can sometimes include situational provisions set forth by the court or a “surety,” a third party charged by the court with responsibility for making sure that the accused doesn’t flee before the case can be heard, often without or with a cash deposit.
Caryma Sa'd, can be a beneficial representative to you under these circumstances in numerous ways:
- We may be able to negotiate your release directly with law-enforcement authorities without a bail hearing.
- If a hearing proves necessary, we can ensure that it happens as quickly as possible.
- We can negotiate for the most reasonable possible conditions of your release, without your being subjected to house arrest, curfew, or other extraneous conditional reporting.
- At a contested bail hearing, if needed, Caryma Sa'd can review proposed sureties, ensure that the terms are kept appropriate, and brief your sureties in the demands to be placed upon them.
- Caryma Sa'd will draft a release plan with your sureties’ input that will satisfy any concerns the court might raise. This could include provisions for alcohol or drug assessments or treatment, counseling or other reformatory efforts demonstrating that you understand the gravity of your issues.
- Caryma Sa'd will coordinate with witnesses to attend your bail hearing and provide any necessary evidence supporting your release.
- If necessary, Caryma Sa'd can arrange to have witnesses attend court and provide evidence at the bail hearing. This can help to identify weaknesses in the Crown's Case and make your release from custody more likely.
