As you might know, a person’s court trial likely won’t start immediately after their arrest. Investigators take their time and work with prosecution to gather evidence and build a case; likewise, the defendant takes this time to build a case for his or her own self. This “time” taken is often weeks, months, even a few years. During this time, it isn’t fair to keep the defendant locked in jail; the defendant is allowed to leave jail and return home and go about as normal of a life as possible.
There are conditions, however. For one, the defendant must actually be allowed to leave jail, in a process called posting bail. In extreme circumstances, the judge will deny bail for a person but in most, they’ll be granted bail. They’ll have to pay x amount of dollars to be released, or they can hire a bail bondsman to assist the process, and this would cost only 10% of the full bail amount.
Bail is a fair process because everyone is innocent until proven guilty. We uphold this belief here at Bail Bond Store – Santa Clarita and want to protect this. We can help you help your loved one bail out of jail so they do not have to waste their days in jail.
