How does the 10 day hold if not bonded out policy work?
My son was charged with simple possession on 2/7; then DUI (not alcohol but pot) on 2/14--I bonded him out for that one; then 2nd DUI (again smoking pot) and another simple possession on 3/8. I did not bond him out for this one. He has not been to any hearings yet for any of them since it has all happened in about a month. Since I did not bond him out for the 2nd DUI how does the 10 hold apply and one DUI was in Humphries County and the 2nd DUI was in Dickson County. He has no money so he will need to ask for public defender--how does that work? If first court date for the 1st DUI is set for 3/19 which is close to the 10 day mark but it is in Humphries County and he is in jail in Dickson County. Unfortunately, I do not have the money for an attorney but am confused how it works.

And would it do any good if we paid off probation fee's and court cost in advance?
