Where could you be held?

Once arrested, whether you stay in jail, until your trial, depends on numerous factors including:
  • The nature and circumstances of the charges
  • The weight of the evidence
  • Your family ties and length of residence in the community; and,
  • Your prior record


In serious cases, the court may order that you be held in jail pending trial.
