A bail bond allows you to help a loved one get out of jail while they await trial, but how does the process work? Allied Bonding Company in Lexington, NC, has experienced bail bondsmen who help individuals get out of jail quickly, discreetly, and without a hassle. They will explain the typical bail procedure so you’ll know what to expect if you need their services.
Remember this information when you or someone you know needs to obtain a bail bond:
- Bail: This is the amount of money a person under arrest must pay the sheriff or court to be released from jail until their hearing or trial date.
- Setting a Bail Amount: A judge typically sets the bail amount for each person accused of a crime. Factors that influence the bail amount include the severity of the offense, criminal history of the defendant, their community ties, and the likelihood they will attempt to flee if released.
- Bail Bonds: Once the judge establishes the bail amount, you can arrange for a bonding company to post a bail bond to the court. The bonding company charges a fee, called a premium, for their services. To secure the bond, the bonding company requires you to provide collateral, such as a house or car. When the bail bondsman posts the bond, the jailer releases your loved one.
