Appeal from bail, bond, or recognizance order. Provides that a court may stay the execution of a bail order, in all bail decisions, for as long as reasonably practicable, but in no event more than three days, for a party to obtain an expedited appeal before the next higher court. Under current law, there is no maximum time for the stay unless the bail decision was governed by the bail presumption provisions. Read the Bill »
