Our team understands how confusing the bail process can be with you and your loved one every step of the bail process.
What Happens After Your Loved One Has Been Arrested?
Your loved one will most likely be taken to the nearest city jail. There, they will get their fingerprints and photographs taken. Their belongings will be documented too. When they are assigned a cell, they will also be given an arraignment date.
At the arraignment, the judge will let you know what you are convicted of and if you qualify for bail. There are many factors that influence the ability to qualify. Some of these include the severity of the crime, your loved one’s flight risk, and their past criminal record. If they do qualify, they will be given the bail amount at the arraignment too.
How Does Bail Work?
If a person is granted bail, they are able to wait for trial at home if they pay off the bail amount. If they don’t, your loved one will stay in jail until their trial date. The bail amount varies on the severity and type of crime. Usually, a judge sets the bail amount very high. They only accept cash, unless there’s a bail bond involved. Most people don’t carry large amounts of cash or have it lying around at home. Therefore, it’s very difficult for the detained or the family to pay off the bail amount upfront.
What Is a Bail Bond?
Instead of paying off the bail amount with cash, you can use a bail bond. To obtain one with us, you only need to pay a small percentage of the bail amount. ABC Bail Bonds covers the rest. A bail bond holds us responsible for ensuring that your loved one will show up to all the court dates and trial. If they do, they won’t need to pay any additional costs. However, if they fail to show up, they will have to pay the entire bail amount plus fees and can get arrested once again.
Our team sends regular reminders about upcoming court dates to ensure that your loved one is fully prepared and on track with the bail process. We are readily accessible to answer any questions or concerns along the way.
