Unfortunately, many individuals who are arrested and detained cannot afford bail–therefore they remain in jail, often resulting in lost jobs, homes, and even custodies of children and pets. The consequences of not affording bail can be life-changing and virtually impossible to recover from, depending on the situation and the crime. Thankfully, bail bonds exist–and companies like ABC Bail Bonds, which is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and approves all bonds–can guarantee a prompt release from jail, at any time of day or night, so those life-changing consequences do not have to happen to anyone.
We understand that bonds are usually large sums of money, which is not always readily available out of the defendant’s pocket; that is why we are ready to help pay what is needed in order for them to be released, so they can return to their lives–however, in order to utilize a bond, the defendant must show up to court and do what is legally expected of them. Once that has been complete, they are off the hook and can completely return to their normal lives.
