As the holidays roll around, so do expenses. It’s the season of giving, but sadly many of us don’t have enough income to supply the increased spending habits. If you have taken the wrong turn, stolen something from a store, and gotten arrested, ABC Bail Bonds is here for you. We offer affordable and speedy bail bonds to get you out of jail as soon as possible. We have dealt with all types of crimes over the years, and we offer 100 percent confidentiality. So, if you have committed theft recently, let us help you through the bail process and get you home for the holidays.
What Happens After You Have Been Arrested?
You will be taken to the nearest jail and your belongings will be documented. Your photograph and fingerprints will be taken as well. Authorities will let you know when your arraignment date is. This is the date when the judge will let you know what you have been convicted of and if you qualify for bail. A couple factors influence your ability to qualify for bail, such as the severity of the crime, your criminal record, and your flight risk.
If you do qualify for bail, then ABC Bail Bonds can help you. All you need to do is pay a small percentage of the bail amount to secure a bond with us. We will take care of the rest.
What Are the Penalties for Theft?
The penalties for theft depend on the value of the goods that were stolen. A Class C misdemeanor is given if the goods were valued under $50. You will pay a fine of up to $500, but you won’t serve any jail time.
A Class B misdemeanor is given if the goods were anywhere between $50 to $499. The punishment is a fine of up to $2,000 and up to 180 days in jail. A Class A misdemeanor is given if the goods are between $500 to $1,499. You could spend up to a year in jail and pay a fine of up to $4,000. If you have stolen goods that are worth more than this, then you will be facing felony charges which are much more severe. You could spend your whole life in jail and pay fees of up to $10,000.
