Last week  I spoke at a webcast for the Tennessee Bar Association on bail bond issues in Tennessee criminal cases.There  were two main topics that were addressed. First , the new bail bond laws on DUI cases in which the defendant is charged with a second offense or greater. Secondly , factors the court must consider when setting or reducing an excessive bail bond. Tennessee Code Annotated 40-11-118 sets forth the factors . I created a short video on reducing an excessive bail bond.
