What do I do if I cannot afford to make the bail set in my Florida criminal law case?

Video Transcription:

One of the components of a competent criminal defense attorney is to ensure that our client’s bond is set as low as possible. In the event that at first appearance the bond was set in an unjust or unfair way by hiring counsel, counsel can petition the court of home jurisdiction for a reduction of bond. In the event that the court agrees that the original bond is set too high based on the circumstances surrounding the charge of the cumulative criminal history of the accused, the court of home jurisdiction can modify the original bond and reduce the bond.
