After a person is arrested by the police or sheriff in a city or county, they usually are taken to the Altoona police station or sheriff’s department. They will be booked into the jail. The next step is for a Magisterial District Judge in Blair County or the jurisdiction where the person was arrested to set a bail amount to insure that the defendant returns for all court hearings. In most cases, the defendant will be able to post bail to gain their release very quickly after booking. If you are looking to get your friend/family member out of jail, but you don’t enough money saved to do so, you need to contact an experienced Altoona bail bonds company to help you post bail. A+ Bail Bonds is an agency with years of experience and trust.
