If you are arrested you are entitled to be released on bond. In South Carolina a person is to be brought before a magistrate for a bond hearing within twenty four hours. Many people, however, are not released immediately. Being confined in jail or having someone you know "stuck in jail" without a bond hearing can be a stressful experience.

There are many situations or exceptions where a person is not afforded a bond hearing. Most of those problems can be solved either within a few hours or sometimes a few days, so that a person can be released on bond.

If you are trying to get someone out of jail contact Attorney Greg McCollum for an immediate consultation.

At the criminal defense firm of Gregory McCollum, Attorney at Law, we know what steps to take so that we can begin immediately taking the steps necessary to lift any jail holds so that you can be released as quickly as possible.

While Attorney Greg McCollum has represented hundreds of people allowing them to be released from jail, the following are just a few examples where we have taken legal action so our client who was in jail was released.

What will happen on your case, depends upon many factors. Having an experienced and qualified criminal defense lawyer is one of those factors. Every case is unique and different defenses are available on different cases. If you are interested in a consultation, please contact the Law Office of Greg McCollum for an appointment.

Following are some examples of cases that Attorney Greg McCollum has handled. These are provided to give you information which may be helpful. Often, people think that because they were arrested and charged with a criminal offense that there is nothing they can do about it, and that the situation is hopeless or futile. It is important to know that an arrest and charge is only an accusation, and that a person is not automatically deemed to be guilty. In some cases the person is innocent, in other cases the state lacks sufficient evidence to convict, and sometimes the person has been charged with a greater offense than the state can prove, which can result in charges being reduced or dismissed completely. What can or will occur on your case can not be predicted with absolute certainty. The practice of law is not a science dependent on absolute rules. Law must be interpreted and applied to a particular set of facts, which may or not be proven. What will happen to your case depends upon several factors and each case is unique.

When reading results from past cases it is important to know that any result Attorney Greg McCollum may achieve on behalf of one client does not necessarily indicate similar results can be obtained for other clients.

State vs. D.S. (2011)
Felony Possession of Marijuana
Distribution of Marijuana

This individual was out on bond for a possession of marijuana charge. A few months later he was arrested again on other drug charges including allegations that he sold marijuana to an under cover agent of the police.

As a result of the second arrest his bail bondsman filed a motion in court to "get off the bond" so that he was held in jail without bond.

His family hired a bonding company to obtain his release on the new charge, but he was unable to be released from jail. His family was told that he would remain in jail for at least a month or more before a hearing could be conducted, which, even then, would not guarantee his release.

After consulting some Criminal Defense Attorneys, his family retained Attorney Greg McCollum to obtain his release. Within a few days we were able to get a Court Order relieving the first bonding company, setting the bond again and the client was released.

State vs. D.N. (2010)
Bank Fraud (5 counts)
Fraudulent Checks (Multiple counts)
Fugitive Warrant

This client's family contacted our office after he was arrested for multiple fraudulent check (bad checks) warrants in additional to charges of Bank Fraud. Once the individual was in jail multiple local jurisdictions placed holds on him at the jail so he could not be released. In addition, a fugitive warrant was served upon him alleging he was a fugitive from justice from the State of Georgia, which barred his release from the J. Reuben Long Detention Center.

His family retained Attorney Greg McCollum and our office quickly resolved the holds by contacting all of the police agencies and magistrate courts. Additionally, a bond hearing was arranged and bond was set on the fugitive warrant. After being told he could not get out of jail, within a few days the client was released.

State vs. J.S. (2010)
Pointing a Firearm

This case involved a local businessman who was arrested after being accused of pointing a gun at someone. Before our office represented him he was accused of missing a mandatory court appearance also known as a bond returnable date or roll call. His family retained our office after he was arrested and jailed on a bench warrant. Once our office was retained we were able to schedule a hearing for motion to lift the bench warrant, after the hearing the Circuit Judge issued an Order Lifting the Bench Warrant. The client was released.
