Is when a person is being detained by law enforcement and notified of possible charges filed against them. Law enforcement will typically take the accused to the local Police or Sheriffs Department for booking. The person being arrested is now the defendant.
The booking process basically consists of fingerprinting, background check, check for warrants and getting into the computer system. The detainee will be searched for weapons. Their personal belongings will be catalogued and retained by the jailer. During their time in jail the detainee will not have access to their money, credit cards, cell phones, etc.
Traditionally, bail is some form of property deposited or pledged to a court in order to persuade it to release a suspect from jail, on the understanding that the suspect will return for trial or forfeit the bail
The amount of bail
This is determined by the bail schedule in each particular county. The Bail Schedule is a pre-determined amount set for each specific charge. The arresting agency can raise, reduce, or reject bail for the defendant, depending on the circumstances.
Bail Bondsman / Bail Bond Agency
Bail Bond Agencies enable you to have a friend/relative freed from jail without requiring you to personally post the entire bond amount. A bail bond agent, or bondsman, is any person or corporation which will act as a surety and pledge money or property as bail for the appearance of a criminal defendant in court. A Bail Bond Agency will typically collect a specific percentage of the total bail amount (as prescribed by law) from you. The bail bondsmen guarantees to the court that the defendant will appear in court each and every time the judge requires them to.
Bail bond agencies typically collect 10% of the bail amount from you as a “Premium.” To have a friend/relative freed from jail, you pay this amount or arrange financing with us
Collateral is something used to secure the entire amount of the bond if the defendant does not appear in court. Types of collateral include: houses, land, cars, cash, credit cards, boats, or anything that is equal to or more than the amount of the bond. You will get the collateral back once the person appears in court and the bond is exonerated
