Virginia COVID-19 Response Motions all Jails: New Opportunities for Sentence Reductions and Bond Reconsiderations
Invictus Law is concentrating its efforts for the next three weeks to serving the community by helping those currently serving sentences in the local area. We are ready to help by providing legal services in the form of emergency sentence reduction hearings and bond reconsideration motions for all of those at risk from COVID-19. This is a severe health issue, and we are committed to getting your loved ones out of jail and home safely as fast as possible.
Virginia Sentence Reductions and Bond Reconsiderations
The Department of Public Safety and Homeland Security, through Secretary Brian Moran, has encouraged Prosecutors and Judges to reconsider sentences for those incarcerated in local and regional jails.
This is an unprecedented opportunity for our community to lessen the impact of COVID-19 by reducing the population pressure on our local jails.
Opportunities for emergency hearings include bond reconsideration, home monitoring, and sentence reconsideration and reduction for misdemeanor and felony sentences.
The courts are open for emergency hearings to determine whether older at-risk inmates or those with underlying health issues can be released early for all current inmates serving sentences at:
- Virginia Beach Correctional Facility
- Chesapeake Correctional Facility
- Norfolk Correctional Facility
- Hampton Roads Regional Jail
- Western Tidewater Regional Jail
Invictus Law Can Help Today
Our office is prepared and qualified with skilled Virginia criminal defense attorneys who can draft, file, and argue these emergency motions on behalf of anyone that needs this important service.
For all defendants that have been denied bail, our office will be able to file emergency bail reconsideration motions to ensure at-risk defendants are able to petition the court for a reasonable bond.
This is extremely important for all those inmates awaiting trial because, given the current Court Closures through April 6, 2020, trial dates are expected to be significantly delayed. As trial dates are delayed, the Courts and Prosecutors will be more willing to reconsider bond. Many jurisdictions are willing to allow defendants to be released on home monitoring programs.
Do not delay as this opportunity will not last longer than the next few weeks. During this extremely stressful time of uncertainty due to the Covid-19 outbreak, Invictus Law will be able to petition the courts for early release and bail for at-risk inmates. Our staff is working 24 hours a day and 7 days a week to make sure that your loved one is released and home safe as fast as possible. Call us today (757) 337-2500 to discuss how our team can help.
