Detention Hearing

A detention hearing in federal court is much like a bail hearing in state court. The court determines whether to detain the defendant without bail. If bail is appropriate, the court decides which conditions, such as a particular amount or government monitoring, will ensure the defendant will show up for court appearances. The judge will consider if the defendant’s release will compromise the safety of any particular person or the community at large.
