The Bail Process

If you have a friend or family member who has been arrested, or is already in jail, feel free to call our office for bond information. Our agents are happy to answer any questions you may have. 

What Is Bail?

Bail is intended to ensure that the defendant shows up for court. The constitution guarantees you the right to bail. We know that it can all be overwhelming and frightening, but we will be there to help you and guide you through the process.

Once a person is arrested, they are taken to the local jail for processing. The processing (booking) takes about 1 – 4 hours to complete. Once the booking process is complete, the appropriate fees and security can be determined, and the inmate will have the option to stay in jail or bond out.

Getting Started

Upon getting in contact with us, we will provide you with a free quote for the bond amount. Please provide us with the following information to get the process started:

  • Defendant's Name
  • Date of Birth
  • County They Were Arrested In
  • Jail Number (Facility They Are Being Held In)
  • Date Arrested

If you are not able to provide us with this information, we can still help you. Just contact us to help your loved one get back home as soon as possible.

Next Steps

When a posted bond is agreed upon for a defendant, we will go forth with filling out the forms. To better serve you, we can make arraignments to meet in person at your convenience.

Once the completion of the forms and collecting of the premium is completed, we will post bond immediately. We have our agents located in jails around the clock 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If premium can’t be paid in full, we also offer payment plans. Just contact us to better assist you in this matter.

Once AAA Liberty Bail Bonds has rapidly posted your bond, the defendant will be released within 4-12 hours, depending on the process that occurs at the Correctional Facility and how they release their inmates.

Depending on the seriousness of the crime committed, it is possible to have your bail posted right after being booked. It may be necessary to wait -usually less than 48 hours – to go before a judge and learn about the eligibility to post bail and what the costs are.

Some areas have set bail amount rates but in many cases, the judge decides on the bail amount, depending on the severity of the crime. The judge will use a number of things to determine how much bail is required or if it’s even going to be permitted. Among the things the judge will consider are:

  • Does the defendant have a criminal record?
  • Has the defendant been making proper court appearances?
  • Does the defendant have any ties to the community?
  • Is the defendant a danger to others?
  • Any additional concerns that may affect the defendant.

 

In some cases, bail may be completely waived. Bailing someone out of jail is an easier process than you may think. Contact us to learn more.
