Can Bail Ever Be Lowered?

long-beach-bail-bonds-891

It is not often a judge will lower a bail amount after it has been formally announced, but every now and then it does happen. It happened recently for an Orange County, CA man: Henry Rodriguez.

Rodriguez was arrested in 1998 for double murder and his bail was set at $1 million. Today, he is still in custody but his bail now sits at $500,000. Here is what has happened since his arrest:

Rodriguez was originally convicted but then granted a new trial in 2003 because investigators never informed Rodriguez of his right to remain silent; his Miranda Rights. They had illegally coerced a confession from him.

Rodriguez was convicted again at the conclusion of his second trial, but the defense claimed there was a jailhouse informant, and the prosecution did not turn over records of this informant.
