From the time a person is arrested in Tampa, FL until they are bonded out, can seem like an eternity. If you are the one trying to bond them out, it can be frustrating if you don't know the entire process and how it works. If you contact our Tampa office, we will begin the application process immediately and start processing the necessary paperwork to complete the bond.
Brennan Bail Bonds can start the process any time of day and are able to take several forms of payment. We accept major credit cards (American Express, MasterCard, VISA and Discover), various types of collateral, cash, and in some cases payment arrangements can be made. When filling out the application, we will be able to inform the applicant whether or not they qualify for a payment plan.
With adequate information, such as the defendant's full name, date of birth, past criminal history and possible location where they are being detained, we can complete the application in a relatively short amount of time. If the information is not available, our staff will be able to contact Tampa, Florida law enforcement and uncover what they need.
The amount of bail a person will have to come up with will be determined by the severity of their crime, their past criminal history and other factors the judge may choose to take into consideration. For most bonds, a bond agent will be able to accept 10 percent of the required bond amount. This will be sufficient to obtain the defendant's release.
If an extremely large bail has been set, co-signers may choose to use their homes or vehicles as collateral for bond. When an applicant decides to do this, they will normally have to relinquish the deed or the title to the property to the bonding agent as proof of ownership. The bondsman or their agency will retain possession of the document until the defendant works completely through the legal process and the court releases the bond.
Brennan Bail Bond agents work with all members of the criminal justice system throughout Tampa, Florida. They work with law enforcement agencies as well as the courts when preparing the documents needed for obtaining the release of a defendant. They begin the process as soon as they are contacted by the individual's family for the purpose of paying the bond.
Once a person has been arrested in Tampa, FL, they are immediately transported to the local jail or law enforcement agency to be booked. Booking normally consists of having their photograph and fingerprints taken as well as a thorough background check and inquiries to uncover any other possible warrants that may be in their name. The entire booking process can take anywhere from 2 to 4 hours to complete depending on the circumstances and any questioning that must take place. After they have been entered into the system, a bail bondsman can then post their bail and obtain their release.
