Criminal Procedure Law Section 510.20
Application for a change in securing order
1.Upon any occasion when a court has issued a securing order with respect to a principal and the principal is confined in the custody of the sheriff as a result of the securing order or a previously issued securing order, the principal may make an application for recognizance, release under non-monetary conditions, bail, a reduction of bail, or imposition of non-monetary conditions in conjunction with bail or a reduction of bail.
2.(a) The principal is entitled to representation by counsel in the making and presentation of such application. If the principal is financially unable to obtain counsel, counsel shall be assigned to the principal.
(b)Upon such application, the principal must be accorded an opportunity to be heard, present evidence and to contend that an order of recognizance, release under non-monetary conditions or, where authorized, bail, a reduction of bail, or imposition of non-monetary conditions in conjunction with bail or a reduction of bail, must or should issue, that the court should release the principal on the principal’s own recognizance or under non-monetary conditions rather than fix bail, or where bail has been imposed, reduce the amount of bail and impose non-monetary conditions, where authorized under this title, and that if bail is authorized and fixed it should be in a suggested amount and form.
3.When an application for a change in securing order is brought under this section and one or more of the charge or charges on which such securing order was based have been dismissed and/or reduced such that the securing order is no longer supported by the provisions of section 510.10 of this article, the court shall impose a new securing order in accordance with such section.
