What Crimes Can I use a Bail Bond for?

What Crimes Can I use a Bail Bond for?When it comes to posting bail you have a few options. The first option is to use a cash bond, where you provide the court or jail with the full amount of the bond. This can be very spendy, as bail amounts are often in the thousands or tens of thousands. While you do get (most of) your money back when the trial is over it is rare for people to have such a large amount of cash on hand. Your other option is a surety bond in which you pay a small non-refundable fee that is about 10 percent of the total bail amount. These bonds can be used for any type of crime, including the following.

Felony Bail Bonds

Felonies are considered more serious crimes. They can include arson, burglary, assault, robbery, kidnapping, rape and murder. If someone you care about has been charged with any of these or another felony it is important that they are bailed out of jail, for they will need this time to meet with attorneys on a regular basis to ensure the best possible outcome from their court hearings.

Misdemeanor Bail Bonds

Less serious crimes such as trespassing, vandalism, disorderly conduct, petty theft and the like will usually fall into the misdemeanor category. These crimes can have serious consequences at well, so be sure to post a loved one's bail.

DUI Bonds

Driving under the influence is a serious issue all across America. If you plan on drinking, take a cab or arrange a ride! If you or someone you care about has been arrested for a DUI there are bail bond options to have you released.

Possession Bail Bonds

Drugs are another common issue that land people in jail. From marijuana to heroin, if you get caught, you're headed to jail. Get in touch with a bail bond agent to have a defendant released. They need help, not jail time.
