Can you get bail if you have a state

My husband was arrested in Henry County and the fugitive warrant was outside of Atlanta. What would happen next if he was able to get bail or do you have an approximate figure on the cost?

A: Judges have discretion to post bail for fugitive warrants, but most judges refuse bail in these cases because they fear the defendant poses a risk of absconding. We regularly handle matters in Henry County and Atlanta, but cannot give a rough estimate of the cost of representation as it depends on your husband’s charges and what he wants to achieve with the case.
