Getting arrested is one thing every normal human being might go through at least once in their life. In most cases, it might be due to either a misunderstanding or just a light mistake that you made. Many people that get themselves in such situations are mostly good people, like you or your loved ones, who have obeyed the law most of their lives but happened to find themselves on the wrong side of the law, just that one time. When such a thing happens, it is paramount to get these people out of jail, so that they can come and go about their everyday businesses. You will need the help of professionals to help you take care of securing your or loved one’s release from jail within the shortest time possible. This is normally made possible through bails and bonds.
What’s the difference between bail and a bond?
These two terminologies are often interchanged when being used. When a person commits a crime and is arrested, they are allowed by law to request for their temporary release before their trial is heard. They can be able to get out of jail by posting bail or obtaining a bond. So what’s the difference between these two anyway?
Well, in layman’s terms, bail is the money an accused pays to secure their temporary release from jail while a bond is posted on the defendant’s behalf to secure their release. This bond is in many cases posted by a bail bond company. This money paid to the court is not in any way a punishment but just collateral that you will appear in court during the trial or hearing and that you will not breach any agreements you made will signing for the bail terms. If you fail, however, to appear in court for the hearing during the set dates, or violate any parts of the conditions which were set for your release, you forfeit your money. Same happens to the bail bond company.
Bail hearing process
After an arrest has been made, your representatives will contact the court and fast track your bail hearing. This usually involves the judge or an authorized court official setting up the bail amount which should secure your release when paid. Some factors are, however, considered when setting up bail terms such as; previous criminal records, ties to the community, or if the accused is deemed to be of risk if released. If your criminal records are clean, your bail process will be quite easy, more so if it is a minor crime. However, if you have some previous issues with the law, or the court finds you a flight risk or risk to the society, the bail might be denied and that’s why you may also need to involve the professionals to take care of that for you.
Why do bail bond companies matter?
In most cases, courts can hit you with bail terms which are way beyond your ability to pay at that particular time. Bail bond companies will help you secure your release even though you don’t have the cash with you at that moment. The company will benefit by getting the money repaid back to them with some interest on top. The better the company, the better your chances of securing your bond.
