The Basics of Bail Bonds
Bail bonds are a constitutional right. As part of the 8th Amendment, bail was included to prevent individuals who were charged with a crime from being detained for long periods of time without proper recourse. Posting bail allows the defendant to be released from jail in a timely manner so they can return to their families and keep up with their obligations. When a defendant is released on bail, not only can they continue to work and care for their families, they can hire an attorney and begin to work on their case.
If you have been arrested on a criminal charge, you will be spending some time in jail unless you can find someone to bail you out of jail. The process is quite simple. After an arrest you are taken to the jail or detention facility where you are booked, fingerprinted, photographed and put through a criminal background check to find out if you have any open warrants or holds. After this part of the process is completed, you will be given a bond amount that is either set by a bail bond schedule or by a judge at an arraignment hearing. A friend or family member can contact a bail bonds agent as soon as they are notified of your bail amount.
Hiring a bail bonds agent is much more efficient than posting the bond yourself. If you choose to do it on your own, you must pay the full bond amount, in cash and in person. By using a bail bonds agent, you will only pay a 10% premium set by the state. The bail bonds agent will post your bond as long as you agree to appear at all scheduled court hearings. As soon as the case is closed, any bail money owed to the co-signer will be released and returned. Both the co-signer and the defendant will have specific responsibilities according to the bail bond contract. Your bail bond agent will make sure you understand what is expected of you and the consequences if something happens to go wrong.
A bail bond agency has several responsibilities:
- Complete all of the required paperwork
- Collect the required premium
- Post the appropriate amount needed to obtain the defendant's release
- Meet with the defendant and co-signer after the release to complete any unfinished business
- Make sure the defendant attends all scheduled court dates and complies with all of the courts' requirements
In cases where collateral is required, a “Nebbia Proffer” may be needed to ensure that any piece of property used to secure the bond was legitimately obtained. A Nebbia hearing is used to verify that the property being used was not obtained through illegal activity or means. At Brennan Bail Bonds we know that it is up to us to provide legitimate forms of collateral. We make every effort to provide valid documentation so that you can use whatever property you need to secure the bond.
