Non U.S Citizens, Bail in Criminal Case?
Many less experienced criminal defense attorneys attempt to arrange bail for non-U.S. citizens. Most often this turns out to be a disaster.
The general rule is that for most federal felonies, if convicted any non-United states citizen will be deported.
If bail is granted by the federal criminal court, for instance, in a serious drug case, generally an ICE (Immigrations and Customs Enforcement) hold has already been placed on the client. That means that the client will be taken from the criminal jail to the immigration jail and not given credit toward the criminal case for any days of custody.
