Re: Arthur Hearing
If an individual is arrested for a “non-bondable” offense, such as murder, sexual battery or kidnapping, the law presumes that the individual will remain in jail pending trial.
An individual arrested for a “non-bondable” offense has the right to ask for an Arthur hearing. The purpose of the hearing is for the judge to determine whether the individual should be released pending trial.
