What is bail and how is it set?

Bail is basically an insurance policy guaranteeing the accused will be present for future court hearings.  Bail is set by the judge assigned to your case.   Here’s how it works:if your son is arrested on Monday morning, by law he will be scheduled to make a first court appearance in front of a judge within 24 hours of his arrest.  During the first court appearance, your son will be officially read his charges, and if it’s a misdemeanor crime, he may have the chance to enter a guilty or not guilt plea.  And if the accused can not afford an attorney of their own, they will be appointed one.  At the end of the hearing, the presiding judge will determine your son’s bail based on several factors including, the seriousness of the charges, criminal history and employment status.

Court Gavel Bail BondsMy son’s bail is set at $50,000. We don’t have that kind of money.  What now? Good question.  In most cases, an arrest is unexpected.  We have yet to meet someone who budgeted for bail.  It’s an unforeseen expense that can cause great stress on a family.  We’re here to lessen that financial burden.  When you work with one of our professional bail agents, you only have to come up with 10% to 15% of the total bail amount.  For example, if your bail is set at $50,000 then as part of our contract you would pay Rush Bail Bonds between $5,000 and $7,500.  We accept all methods of payment and offer flexible plans to make it easier for you.  In addition to our fee, we require a co-signer and collateral.  Collateral comes in all shapes and sizes: bank accounts, cars, property and even jewelry.  Basically anything of value is considered collateral.  We need collateral to ensure you can pay the total bail amount should the accused fail to show up to future court hearings.  We only collect collateral if your son or loved one skips bail.  We certainly hope it never reaches this point.  Our best advice is to make sure you know the terms of release and the dates of all future court hearings.  If you need help keeping track of all your court dates, our bail agents would be more than willing to help.
