Source of Bail

Did a judge request a source of bail hearing? Our experienced Chicago attorney's can help you prepare for the hearing & get your loved one out of jail.

Source of Bail Hearing

If you or a loved one has been charged in Illinois with a drug related crime the prosecution / Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office can request that the judge enter an order requiring a source of bail hearing prior to money for bail being posted. An experienced Chicago criminal lawyer can help you prepare for that source of bail hearing and get your loved one out of Cook County Jail.

When does a source of bail hearing occur in Illinois?

Generally, source of bail hearings occur when an individual is charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver and the amount of alleged narcotics possessed or deliver is very large. In Cook County prosecutors generally move for a source of bail hearing when the amount of narcotics involves kilograms of cocaine or heroin or a money laundering charge involving a large amount of case. Often times we see these hearings in cases of fraud or theft. Source of Bail hearings can be complicated and you need a lawyer who is experienced in handling these hearings – that way you have the best chance of being able to bond out your friend or loved one.

Source of Bail Hearings require the individual wishing to post bond for another to provide sufficient information to the court to show that the monies being posted are from legitimate funds and are not the proceeds of criminal activity. The thought behind this is that individuals that are selling drugs or involved in the drug business cannot be rescued or bonded out by their drug-dealing associates. Monies derived from criminal activity cannot be used to post the bail. Chicago Criminal Attorney Michael Schmiege can assist you with a source of bail hearing in Illinois. Contact our firm if you or a loved one is in custody on a drug charge and the court is requiring a source of bail hearing. Call today for a free consultation

He understood that I made a mistake but it didn’t define who I was...

"I am so appreciative of the help and support that I received from Michael and his team members! They truly helped me figure out my case and I got outstanding results. If anyone can help you get great results, it’s Michael. I had an immigration issue as well and he worked with my immigration lawyer to help find the best solution. He understood that I made a mistake but it didn’t define who I was. I definitely don’t want to go through any of this again but I’m glad that I had the support to get through this."
