A bail bond company will rewrite a bond in some instances. For example, if a person is arrested for a misdemeanor or
felony, he or she will be given a court date. On that court date the person may find there have been no charges filed against them. Fifteen days pass and the bond is exonerated by the court. However at a future date the District Attorney may decide they have enough evidence to file the charges and does so issuing a warrant for the person's arrest. At that time a rewrite bond can be issued if the charges are the same or similar to the original charges, the charges stem from the original offense alleged and the bond must not have been previously forfeited. If you are arrested or charged with a misdemeanor or felony, contact Christine McGuire, the
Santa Cruz Criminal Defense Attorney.
