Denver Bail Considers Flight Risks

A defendant is usually granted bail, unless the charge is murder, or there are extenuating circumstances that prohibit it. One such circumstance is “ flight risk” – the term applied to a defendant who is considered apt to flee the state, or country to avoid trial.

In order to determine if someone is a flight risk, a Denver bail judge will take several things into account. Does the defendant have roots in the community – spouse, children, a good job? Is there any history that would cause the defendant to flee? It is to the advantage of a defendant to have a Denver bail attorney present during a flight risk determination.

If a defendant is wealthy, or has access to private air transport, a court may consider him/her to be an extreme risk. Any connection to organized crime is another red flag.
