Bailing someone out of jail is a foreign concept to most people. It is not something that many people deal with a on a daily basis. This leads to many people having questions about bail when they need to finally use it to rescue a friend from jail. Bad bail bond companies take advantage of this lack of knowledge. Good companies, like Bail Bonds in Downtown, do their best to educate their clients, and help them understand how bail works.
- What is the difference between a bail agent and a bail bondsman?
Actually, there is no difference between a bail agent and a bail bondsman. Both terms are used to describe the same job.
- How much does bail cost?
The cost of a person’s bail depends on a lot of different factors. These factors include, the person’s criminal record, the crime itself, the likelihood of the person running while out on bail, and the threat the person may pose to the community. A judge looks at all of this when determining a person’s bail amount.
- Can you tell me what my friend/family member was arrested for?
Yes, we can do that. First, we will need the name of your friend/family member, plus his or her birthday, and the county where he or she was arrested. This will allow us to look up your loved one in the county jail system and get you specific answers about his or her case.
