What Is Bail
Bail can be very confusing, no matter how many times you may walk this process. Primarily because each case is as unique as its client, and at 123 Presto Bail Bonding, the value of each client and their individual needs is taken very seriously. Let’s take a minute to unpack what this looks like so you have an idea of what to expect. Once you have been arrested you will have a bail hearing before a judge. The average time frame is within 48 hours of an arrest, and the judge will determine all the factors unique to your case to see if bail is an option for you. If you have been found eligible for bail, you will typically have three options:
- Remain in jail. This option can require you to remain in jail for an undetermined extended period of time. Facing weeks, or even months, of time in jail is usually not a question as there is family and work that will be compromised.
- Cash Bail. This option basically means you are going to pay the total bail amount. This price will be set by the judge, factoring in any past records, if you are a flight risk, are you considered dangerous, and many other factors. Because each case is unique, it is impossible to say exactly the price the judge will say, with the range being from a few thousand dollars up to one million. Few people are in the position to secure these kinds of funds for a full cash bail.
- Get a Bail Bond. This is where you would secure a bail bond agency to take on the full responsibility of your bail cost. Your bail bondsman will essentially be taking on the financial bond of what you owe to the court, with you guaranteeing you will show up for the sentencing. In exchange for this security, the bail bondsman will need a form of collateral which in turn allows you to only give the bondsman a fraction of the cost in financial security. If you do not show up for court, this will result in you jumping bail and having an additional warrant out for your arrest, and most likely having a bounty hunter after you. This also allows the bail bondsman to keep your collateral which is generally the title to your car or home, any jewelry or other assets you placed as assurance for the cost of your bail.
