Will I be able to remain on bond during the appeal if sentenced to a term of incarceration?
It is possible to get a bond while your case is on appeal. There are certain things you have to do to qualify. You cannot have been convicted of a capital offense. You cannot have any prior felony convictions. And you cannot have any other pending felony charges against you. If you meet those criteria, you can file a motion for appellate bond and it’s within the trial court’s discretion whether or not that bond will be granted.
