   Character Reference For Bail Hearing

Your Honor:

Thank you for the opportunity to write on behalf of {Defendant’s Full Name} on the occasion of their bail hearing. I am their {relationship}, and I can vouch for the fact that they have a large and dedicated support system. Their {family/friends} and I will help ensure that they will make the scheduled appearances and will adhere to all other conditions of bail.

I have known {Name} for {time period}, and can attest to their character. Specifically, {example of family ties, job, moral values, etc.}. If {Name} is granted bail, they will be able to continue their responsibilities in the community while also working toward a just resolution to their legal matters.

I am confident that {Name} is not a threat to persons or property. They want nothing more than to {clear their name/set things right/see the process through to its lawful conclusion}. Thank you again for your consideration.
