New York money manager, Bernard Madoff, who was arrested for fraud in New York is wearing an ankle monitor (house arrest) while waiting for his criminal case to go to trial. The prosecutors in his case want his bond revoked because they claim he is trying to get rid of assets and therefore poses a risk to the community. His criminal defense attorneys argue that Madoff is not a danger to the community and is not a flight risk.
In Jacksonville and all of Florida, there are two reasons to set a monetary bond:
1. If the person arrested for a crime is a danger to the community OR
2. If the person arrested is a flight risk.
Each person arrested has the right to an individualized review of his or her situation. For more information on bond matters in Jacksonville, click here.
