At a Preliminary Hearing, Attorney Emkey requested a bail reduction for a client who was incarcerated for close to 30 days (since the day of his arrest). The district justice refused to address the bail reduction and continued the Preliminary Hearing for at least 2 weeks. Attorney Emkey immediately went to the Court of Common Pleas and filed an emergency motion for a bail reduction.The Judge (in the Court of Common Pleas) granted Attorney Emkey's request and gave his client Unsecured Bail. Attorney Emkey's client was immediately released from prison, saving the client from anymore jail time!
