Legal Answers
2 Questions Answered

Q. When the "required bond amount" states that it has been cleared by judicial sentencing/order what does that mean?
A: I would need more detail to answer this question. The court can issue a own recognizance release, and there may be something else holding him. I would think that since the case is new that they are still compiling paperwork. Call a good lawyer to look it up.
Q. DUI, had court ordered therapy, therapist wont provide proof until insurance pays. Is this contempt?
A: It is not contempt. It is market economics. You could get a court order, but I am guessing the court ordered you to pay for the evaluation. Just find a way to pay.
