When Can a Person be Held Without Bail in Arizona?
If you or a loved one has committed a serious crime in Arizona, it is possible that you will be held in jail without bail or with bail that is set too high for you or your family to pay. Although it seems unfair, the judge may decide to do this if:
- You might be a danger to others.
- You might flee or fail to appear.
- You’re charged with a very serious or violent crime.
- The crime you have been accused of is punishable by death or life in prison.
- You’re charged with certain drug-related crimes in Arizona.
- You might tamper with evidence or otherwise obstruct justice.
- You have a history of felony offenses in Arizona.
