Getting Out of Jail on Own Recognizance

The lawyers at William Moore Criminal Defense explain that the simplest way of getting released on bail is when the court allows the arrested person to be released on their own recognizance (R.O.R.) The R.O.R. process requires that the person must sign a document that presents a written promise of the accused to show up in court as per the court’s requirements. Criminal lawyers may petition the court to allow this type of release even where more serious offenses are alleged by agreeing to special conditions such as an ankle monitor. The accused person may have to request for an O.R. release during the first appearance before the court. If the request is rejected, the person may ask to receive a lower bail amount.

Client Reviews
William Moore saves the day once again... I can’t thank him enough for helping me get my life back on track...You’ll be glad he’s on your defense team, I guarantee it. Eric Bailey
William is an amazing lawyer on the first day he took my case from a felony to a misdemeanor. He always answered my calls and text messages, never a problem. He was always the one in court not sending someone else, unlike my last lawyer. 10/10 would recommend. If I ever have any other problems, he will be the first person I call. Shane B.
