Can You Bail Yourself Out of jail?
There is a common misconception that anyone can bail themselves out of jail without even the slightest setback, hurdle, or other complication. Though it is possible to bail yourself out of jail in some situations, there may be some hurdles preventing you from doing so. Let’s take a look at what is involved with bailing yourself out of jail and why most people end up relying on A Way Out Bail Bonds for assistance.
The Bail Bond Process
If this is your first time in jail or the first time your family member has been thrown in jail, and you do not understand the bail bond process, don’t panic. A Way Out Bail Bonds is here to help. If you or your loved one can cover the amount of bail, bond will be posted, and you will be returned to society until your next scheduled court appearance. The specific amount of your bond is determined during your first court appearance referred to as the arraignment.
Now that the bond is set, the amount can be paid by the defendant, a family member, or a friend. However, bond amounts tend to be fairly high, so there is a good chance the defendant will not have the full amount of money necessary to get out of jail. This is where A Way Out Bail Bonds provides support. We will cover the full cost of your bail to ensure you are released back into society. We make money by collecting a small amount of the bail from each client. However, it is up to you to follow through on your promise to return to court as scheduled after we bail you out of jail. If you were to fail to appear in court on the scheduled date, you would lose your freedom, as well as your money or collateral.
What If the Defendant Has Enough Money to Cover the Full Cost of Bail?
In some situations, the defendant is wealthy or has a wealthy relative or friend who can cover the entire cost of bail after the initial arrest and arraignment. In such a situation, the defendant can bail him or herself out of jail and be the lone cosigner. However, this is an all-cash bail, meaning the entire amount has to be available on hand in cash when the arrest is made in order for the defendant to be released. The typical bail amount is set quite high by judges, especially when the crime is serious. This is precisely why most defendants cannot cover the entire amount of the bail on their own without the assistance of A Way Out Bail Bonds.
