Arresting someone is the last thing anyone wants to do. But, whatever the reason, it is possible that it will happen to some of us. The right to bail is guaranteed by the constitution when you are arrested. In the absence of bail, Innocent Until Proven Guilty becomes Guilty Until Proven Innocent.Learn more about us at Connecticut Bail Bonds Group
The police will allow you to make at least one phone call if you are arrested. You’ll need to phone a friend or family member to help you get out. Bail can be quite costly in most cases. You are fortunate if they have the funds to bail you out. Don’t be discouraged if this isn’t the case. It isn’t the end of the world yet. You can advise them to use one of the bail bond companies. The majority of the money needed to get you out will be loaned by the bail agent. However, you must still pay at least 10% of the whole price. For example, if your bond is set at $30,000, the bail agent will pay you $27,000. You must still come up with $3,000 on your own. Even if you appear in court, the bail agent will not refund the ten percent.
Bail agents might be selective when it comes to who they work with. If you fail to appear in court, they will be held financially responsible. They will go after the individual who bails you out if you skip bail. If you don’t show up for the hearing, certain bail agents may employ a bounty hunter to come get you. Keep in mind that if you run, you will run for the rest of your life.
