A bail hearing is similar to the main trial, with the presence of a defense attorney and a prosecution. The process of arguments, evidence, and witness is also similar.
During the bail hearing, your attorney will try to present your case and request the court for release without bail or reducing the amount of the bail to an affordable level.
As a result of the bail hearing, the following decisions may be taken by the court:
- Release without bail
- Reduce the bail amount
- Keep the defendant in custody
