Imagine this: A friend or family member calls you from county jail, and through the sobbing and the tears you make out that they've been arrested and want to come home... now!
What do you do now? The first thing that many people consider is how to get their friend or loved one out of jail... fast. It's at this point you either progress forward or reel back because without you, a defendant could spend days, weeks or even months in jail before their trial even begins.
It's time to call a professional bail bond agency
During the time that your friend or loved one has spent in jail they could lose their job, their home ‐ regardless if they had even committed the crime they are being held for. Innocent people go to jail every day. Think also about having to spend even more money later if they are charged with a crime in jail, like defending themselves against a violent attack. Yes, someone waiting in jail can be charged with a crime even if it is self defense. It happens all the time in jail.
