Arrest, Booking, and Bail Hearing
When a person is arrested, they will be booked into the jail. This can take some time, because it includes fingerprinting, searching the national crime database, and processing the arrestee. Once the arrestee has been processed, their first hearing sometimes occurs on the same day of their arrest. In some cases, however, the hearing takes place the next day. Bail is set for most people, but if the defendant committed a serious offense, if they have a long criminal history, or if they pose a flight risk, bail may be denied, or it may be extremely high.
Arranging to Pay Bail
The next step of the process for obtaining an arrestee’s release is to arrange to pay bail. For people who have the money to pay the full bail amount, they will only be in jail for as long as it takes to access the money or contact a friend or relative to pay the amount or arrange for collateral. Many people don’t have large amounts of money available to pay the bail amount in full. In situations where it takes a while to pull together that much money, working with a bail bondsman is a good option. This is because bail agents only charge a small percentage of the full bail amount as a fee to obtain the defendant’s release. Many people find it much easier and quicker to come up with this small amount of money. Bail agents are usually available 24/7, and will help you arrange bail as soon as possible.
