What does remanded without bail or no bond mean?

Remanded without bond

Sometimes when a person is arrested, the order will state “remanded without bail or bond.” This means that the judge who reviewed the charge believed there was sufficient reason why this person should remain in custody pending the outcome of their case.

There are many reasons why a person may be remanded without bail. The most common time when a person will be remanded without bail is when they are facing a motion to revoke. A motion to revoke is when the State asks the judge to terminate a persons probation and send them to either jail or prison. The allegation would state the violations that the person is alleged to have committed during their term of probation. Another time when a person may be remanded without bond is when they have failed to show up to court previously. The judge may consider them a flight risk and be hesitant to set a bond that will allow them to evade court once again. Sometimes a person is already out on bond and violates a condition of their bond, under these circumstances it is also common for a judge to set a no bond.

Whatever the reason behind the no bond situation, it still may be possible to have someone bonded out even if there is a no bond order. An attorney can approach the judge with a request to set the bond and present the reasons why a bond is warranted in that case.
