Collateral Damage

Long Beach Bail Bonds

If a defendant gets out of jail using a bail bond from a bail agent, that bail agent becomes responsible for ensuring the defendant appears back in court. If the defendant skips court, the bail agent must pay the rest of the bond. So, what would get a bail agent, a stranger, to take on this big risk for someone they do not know? Collateral.

To secure a bail bond, the defendant and/ or any other parties helping, must pay the bail agent a 10% fee. They may also need to offer any collateral such as property and valuables. Again, if the defendant goes to court, the collateral will be returned to the owners. If not, they lose that collateral...

How Bail Benefits The Public

Long Beach Bail Bonds

It might not have occurred t you, but did you know that the public benefits from bail bonds, not just the person the bail bond is for?

  • By bailing a person out of jail, it lowers pre-trial jail populations, meaning people pay less for the taxes it otherwise could cost.
  • People eligible for bail are deemed safe to be out in the community and thus less of a threat to the public than those who are more violent.
  • People out on bail are more likely to attend their court date, less likely to become a fugitive.
  • People out on bail are frequently checked-up on with physical check-ins, for example. Again, this is to ensure the safety of the public and to ensure the defendant isn’t on the run.
  • For there to be bail, there must be bail agents and companies. This creates hundreds of jobs for people.

The Stark Reality Of Not Paying Bail

Long Beach Bail Bonds

If you’ve ever been arrested and bailed out of jail, be grateful. People who cannot afford bail face a harsh reality that we hope no one will ever have to endure.

Being in jail is about survival. Jails are filled with dangerous, intimidating criminals. And not only is the company unwelcoming, the physical environment is not friendly either. Being enclosed in a small space with criminals and law enforcers is no place anyone wants to be.

Bail is expensive, but can be significantly lowered when a bail bondsman steps in to help. However, there are cases where offenders cannot even afford to pay the bail bondsman. They thus have no choice but to sit in jail where he can try to fight the case or plead guilty. It’s not uncommon that people cannot afford bail.

Bail Bond Store Are The Best Alternative To Paying Bail – Unless You Get ‘Own Recognizance’

Long Beach Bail Bonds

Unless you are allowed to be released on own recognizance, bail bonds are the best alternative to paying bail. Being released on own recognizance means the defendant merely signs a paper acknowledging his or her promise to show up in court on the assigned date. They do not need to pay any bail amount.

However, not everyone is eligible to be released on own recognizance so they must either meet bail or sit in jail. Bail is expensive and the court certainly does not expect everyone to be able to pay this on their own, which is why bail bonds are the best, most affordable alternative.

Using a bail bond means contacting Long Beach Bail Bonds and paying them the 10% fee – 10% of the full bail amount. Then the Long Beach agent will finalize the bond to send to the court...
