Win Source of Bail Hearing. Bond Posted, Client Released

Bond HearingRecently, I won a Source of Funds hearing at the Maywood Courthouse.  At my client’s initial bond hearing, the judge required that my client prove the source of funds prior to being allowed to post the required amount of the cash bond.  Immediately after the bond hearing I was contacted by my client’s family and hired to do whatever I could to get my client out of jail.  I immediately got to work and today, my client is a free man. Here’s how this case started and how I was able to get him released.

My client was pulled over in his vehicle by the Chicago Police.  After he was pulled over the police officer determined that his license had been suspended and he was placed under arrest.  His vehicle was subsequently searched and the police recovered approximately 2 pounds of marijuana and about 120 grams of mushrooms from inside his vehicle.  The arrest occurred late on Friday so he was taken to Central Bond Court at 26th and California on Sunday.  At the bond hearing the Judge set the bond at $10,000 cash.  The state filed a Petition requiring proof of Source of Funds, and the court granted their request.  Source of Funds is a procedure by which the Court will require proof that the money that will be posted for a bond is money that was lawfully obtained.  The law does not want drug money to be used to bond someone out of jail.  Prosecutors frequently request such proof in drug cases in which they believe that the defendant is a drug dealer.  Based on the amount of drugs found in our client’s vehicle, the Court felt that there was enough evidence to believe that my client was in the business of selling drugs.  When the prosecutor files such a request and the Court grants their request, then the burden shifts to the Defendant to file a Petition requesting that the Court conduct a hearing to allow the bond to be posted.  This is known as a Source of Bail Hearing.  At this hearing, the defense has the burden of proving that the money that will be posted for the bond is not drug money.

After the bond hearing I met with the friends and family of our client in my office and obtained bank records, pay stubs, tax returns, business documents, and prepared affidavits to prove that the money that would be used to post the required bond was not drug money.  I filed the petition at the first court date in Maywood, which was just a few days after the bond hearing.  Less than a week later the Court held a hearing which lasted over 2 days.  At the hearing I presented live testimony and presented evidence to the court to prove that the bond money was legally and lawfully obtained.  The Court was convinced that the bond money was not drug money and allowed the family to post the bond.

Once the court grants a source of funds petition, a special court order is prepared and signed by the judge. The person posting the bond then takes that court order to the Sheriff and posts the bond and the defendant is released.  Once that happens all the normal conditions of bond apply, such as a requirement that the defendant appear at every court date, does not leave the jurisdiction without permission from the court and does not violate the law.  Source of funds doesn’t really matter once the petition is granted and the bond is posted.

  1. And if your Innocent they do this in systematic planned criminal undertaking….welcome to Illinois!!!STATE OF ILLINOIS

    Now we have dark Ops Psychology which is a FBI, Behavior Science Unit, malicious operating tool, and numerous unlawful practices of programming/conditioning, of them creating events to use as reinforcements and plant false thought, Example creating people to give names to that are placed in the targeted individuals direct path of travel, while the targeted is subjected to a traumatic created malicious event (disrespect, sexual harassment, outrage,) directly with this individual, that the agents have created with the intentional design to condition/program, a false thought/memory, Etc, to be done by word association to be people, they want to program/condition to have witnessed an event or piece of evidence, or alleging to have witnessed a piece of evidence relating to a victim or crime.
    The process is a malicious intentional design and tactic of FBI/State Profilers, after lead detectives learn they have targeted the wrong individual and want them to believe they committed a crime and to get a unlawful confession to take a crime or series of crimes off the books, and/or (because no law enforcement official has ever been prosecuted if the suspect gave a confession no matter what alleged police misconduct was alleged) get Immunity to outrageous law enforcement tactics of Organized Stalking. They will use an advanced “DOD, NSA, FBI, Satellite Roving Surveillance” inter-phased with “Bio Metric Voice Print Technology” that can receive the voice of god an involuntary response that is undetectable to human hearing perception that gives a voice print that is the thought of man. aka MK Ultra, Chipping, Illuminati, Etc…
    The agent use what is called “Nationality Dangerous Stalking Tactics” of the alleged viticms nationality (Polish, Latino, Negro, Etc), and the alleged victims clone to plant alleged vitim in the target individuals mind, and place these individuals directly in the targeted individuals path of travel in stores, restaurants employment sites, Etc. And then have them directly in a distance use direct threats of mutilation and death or intention sexual harassment (which is all created and manufactured by the FBI/State Profilers) , stating they want a confession or the targeted in going to be heinously brutally murdered…
    With the FBI Profile Behavior Science agents operating with State and County law enforcement officials and their, personal family members, that have a internal conflict of interest, using advanced satellite and Bio Metric voice print tech will try using all psychological perception in the targeted individuals direct path of travel, people placed there by them, and all things of color, personal item on the targeted, coins, money, keys, vehicles, food they may stop to purchase along their way, or food they eat in their homes, and assign them to be a victim, nationality of a victim, or a crime or a reinforcement of a victim or crime, and then keep a continual rapport of the items, colors, or items to subject the targeted to a malicious practice of conditioning/programming, believing they will make the targeted believe they committed a crime or some individual witnessed them commit a crime, believing in a common criminal design of all agents and operatives involved that their going to get the targeted to believe that they committed the crime their trying unlawfully to torture a confession on knowing the targeted individual never committed, to conceal multi million dollar FBI/state operations, Etc..
