"No Bond" Warrants in a DUI VOP Cases

If you violate DUI probation – even if it is your first DUI, the consequences can be very serious. The court can sign an arrest warrant with a "no bond" provision. If your warrant contains a "no bond" provision, then after your arrest you may not be able to bond out until you go back to see the judge that originally put you on probation. This can take several weeks in certain circumstances. Instead of waiting in jail, many people hire a private criminal defense lawyer to file for an emergency hearing that allows you to walk into the courtroom with your attorney to ask the judge for relief, including withdrawing the "no bond" warrant or setting a reasonable bond. At your court date for your violation of probation, your attorney may be able to convince both the judge and the prosecutor to give you another chance to complete all the conditions of your DUI probation.
