What is a Nebbia Hold?

A question many clients have for me is what is a Nebbia hold? While the most common cases with Nebbia hold's are drug crimes there are other crimes that can get one as well.  A Nebbia hold is a detainer or a hold put on by a Judge typically at initial appearances for drug crimes. What is means is that before you are able to bond out of jail the clerk or the Judge needs proof that the funds that are being used to post the bond are coming from a non-nefarious source. What does this mean?

It means that you need to be able to show that the money being used for the bond is not from drug sales or any other illegal activity.

Examples of this would be if you just got a recent tax return you could show that the money is from that or you could show pay stubs and bank account information to show where the money is coming from.

If you have a Nebbia hold and you have a bond, even if you pay a bondsman or the jail the bond amount you will not be released until the nebbia hold is removed.

If a Nebbia hold is put on you then you need to hire an attorney to present the evidence necessary to the prosecutor and Judge in order to get the hold removed so that you are able to be released from jail.  Until the Judge signs the order removing it there is not much you can do to get released.
