Statute defines an assault as “placing someone in reasonable apprehension of receiving a battery.” This means that no physical contact has taken place. Examples could be verbally threatening or pointing a weapon at a person. Frequently the acts leading up to a fight result in this charge. Bonds are typically set anywhere from $100.00 to $250.00. We can oftentimes obtain a recognizance bond so our clients don’t have to post any cash. Getting a bond reduction is a simple and fast process. I work every day with the prosecutors who control your bonds. I know which one will allow my clients to be released without posting bond. If a bond must be posted then our next course of action is to obtain the lowest bond amount available. We handle bond reductions for all types of these charges on a weekly basis. Generally a bond reduction is obtained the same day we are retained.
