Hi my name is ***** ***** I'm a California attorney pin your attorney. If the information said she was cited and released I would wonder what with the terms of harrelease. California is quite liberal about releasing people without bail because of the overcrowding in the jail's.
Customer
The question is , is it legal to hold a person in custody when they are already cited with no holds

It might be that the online is ahead of itself oa not right. She has to look at whoever it is that said that she has to be held rather than released even without bail on her own recognizance. Why. Why was she not released? Have you tried getting a criminal defense attorney even if it's thoroughly glad or the public defender's office?
