How long is someone on Pretrial Services?

A common misconception is that a defendant is only on Pretrial Services until their first court date or trial date. Pretrial Services is a condition of bond, meaning that a defendant placed on Pretrial Services will remain on Pretrial Services until the defendant’s case reaches a disposition (i.e. dismissal, sentencing, Drug Court, etc.). The Court can choose to remove a defendant from Pretrial Services at any time by the defendant’s request or at its own discretion.
