Another client is back home with their family after Kenny, Burns & McGill successfully had their Bucks County Warrant removed. The client was being held in Philadelphia custody for various alleged violations of probation stemming from Philadelphia criminal cases.
When the client spoke to his social worker in Philadelphia, he found out that he also had a warrant/detainer from Bucks County. The client did not even remember he had a matter out in Bucks County. His attorney in Philadelphia was already working to resolve the Philadelphia violations. However, Bucks County remained a problem.
The client and his family sought out an experienced criminal defense lawyer who could help him get the mysterious Bucks County warrant removed. The client hired the experienced team of lawyers at Kenny, Burns & McGill to help him in his plight.
Lawyer Thomas D. Kenny jumped into action. He filed a petition to set bail and lift the detainer up in Doylestown. After serving copies of the petition on the District Attorney’s office, Attorney Kenny secured a hearing before a Common Pleas Court Judge the very next day.
Fighting hard for his client, Attorney Kenny succeeded in having the warrant removed and further reclaim the client’s previous bail after it was forfeited. Now the client has no detainer and his family does not need to post any further money for new bail.
If someone you love is sitting in custody due to a detainer, you know how frustrating it can be to wait and wait for their next court date, especially during the pandemic. Courts are operating at limited capacity and prisons are not always outfitted for video hearings.
Some constitutional protections which were originally put in place to make sure that defendants are not held in custody for too long have been temporarily suspended, and people waiting in jail for their next court date have been forced to just keep sitting.
