Friend in question....

My friend is in jail (county) for a pretty serious crime that he didn't commit. He had a bond reduction hearing but it was overruled "considering potential risk to public reasonable" even though there is supposedly no evidence against him. Is this bad? Is the fact that the judge overruled the bond reduction a bad sign?

  • There must be some evidence against him whether it be real evidence or coincidence. The police can't just go and arrest someone for no reason at all, they have to have some proof. However, if the judge overruled the bond reduction it does not mean it is a good or bad sign. It just means that he will have to sit in jail until his trial. The jury will then decide if there is any reasonable doubt. If he really did not commit the crime then I pray that the jury will be able to see this and come back with a not guilty. However, if he did commit the crime then may he get what he deserves.
