Our Client was held on an excessively high cash-only bond. After the Court denied our request to lower the bond, Griffen & Stevens took the case to the Arizona Court of Appeals, arguing that the Court had violated the Arizona Constitution, Section II, Article 15, which states: “Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishment inflicted.” The Arizona Court of Appeals agreed with Griffen & Stevens and ordered the trial court to reduce the bond. The result was a reduction in the bond by $73 million.
