Seminole County Victim Request To The Prosecutor For A Modification Of Bond Conditions

Once set by the court at the initial appearance hearing the bond conditions in the case like no contact with the victim, no return to the residence and an electronic monitor will remain in place for the length of the case not just until the next court date.  Cases in the criminal justice system can take months and sometimes years to resolve.  The victim sending a letter to the prosecutor requesting that the arrested person be allowed to have contact with the victim and return to the residence of the victim and have the electronic monitor removed is a waste of time because it is not the proper procedure for modifying bond conditions.  Prosecutors normally do not even respond to these letters.  No changes to the bond conditions as a result of that letter will occur.  If the victim calls the prosecutor and ask for the arrested person be allowed to have contact with the victim and return to the residence of the victim and have the electronic monitor removed the victim will normally be told that prosecutors do not do that and that the lawyer for the arrested person is the person who has to make that request to the judge.  No changes to the bond conditions as a result of that call will occur.  The criminal justice system has rules and you have to follow the rules or no changes will be made.  If you would like to discuss how I can help, the consultation is free.  Please call me at 407-740-8300, text me at 407-616-8808 or email me at chris@seminoledefense.com.
