ICLE | Pretrial and Presentencing Incarceration During COVID-19
Pretrial and Presentencing Incarceration During COVID-19
On-Demand Seminar (Posted 06/09/20) | Level: Intermediate

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Governor Whitmer issued executive orders with the directive to shrink the jail population as much as possible. Defense lawyers are working to keep nonviolent incarcerated clients out of jails or released during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our expert gives some effective arguments and strategies for reduced bond motions, resentencing motions, and other types of requests for early release.

Watch so you can:

  • Strategize response to warrants and probation and parole violations
  • Seek adjournments until in person preliminary examinations can be held
  • Counsel clients on plea withdrawals
  • Avoid asking for personal bonds
