The court will employ several factors to determine if you are a proper candidate for a reduction of bail. Taylor, Hinkle & Taylor can advise you regarding how to maximize your chances of being granted a reduction of bail.

Alternative Sentencing

A conviction doesn’t always mean a trip to jail or prison. Alternative sentences are sometimes offered and include different combinations of the following: a suspended sentence, probation, fines, restitution, community service and deferred adjudication/pretrial diversion.
