Can you get bail for murder?

The Tennessee constitution allows a bail bond to be set in any crime except for one that's a capital offense. First degree murder, second degree murder, manslaughter, reckless homicide, criminally negligent homicide, they are all eligible for a bail bond.

If you're charged with these serious type of crimes, you can ask the court to lower the bond once it's set. But a magistrate will always must set a bond on any cases. It may be high, but you can always go to court and ask the judge to lower it.

If you've got any questions about bail bond procedures, how to lower your bail bond, how to file a bond reduction motion, how to defend a murder case, give us a call, or visit our website, or contact us about a meeting. We're here to help.
