Elsie Law's Daily Dose Of The Law

"Judges have the power to place restrictions on defendants as a condition of releasing them on bail. For example, depending on the offense charged, a defendant may have to agree to: Abstain from alcohol, drugs, or weapons; Avoid contact with a victim or witnesses; Report regularly to a law enforcement officer; Undergo a medical or psychological counseling program; Maintain or seek employment; Maintain or seek an educational program; and Remain in the custody of a designated relative or other person." -From, "The Criminal Law Handbook" By: Bergman & Berman-Barrett
