Tips And Tricks For Lowering Your Bail

Bail can cost hundreds, thousands, tens of thousands, even a million dollars, depending on the crime. A million dollar bail bond is unfathomable, but even a bail bond in the hundreds is still quite a bit of money that no one ever wants to have to pay. It can weigh and teeter on the mind like a seesaw. Bail is a consequence that has to be dealt with, but you do get your freedom back eventually. Is it worth paying? Yes it is. You want tips and tricks on how you can get your bail lowered? Well unfortunately, there are none.

The judge is very unlikely to change the bail amount after they have already set it. A lawyer cannot lower the bail amount, and neither can a bail bond agent. You may request to have the bail order reviewed, but in all likelihood, the bail will remain the same.

There are different types of courts; but we are here to focus on the Federal and State court systems.

An Example Of A False Report

Not only is it under-whelming, but it’s also very disappointing, that there are still a number of people in prison who have been wrongly convicted of a crime. A person could feasibly be incarcerated right now just because investigators were too lazy, the jury was corrupted, racist, sexist, the technology to test DNA and the evidence was not as precise as they should be, or a number of other circumstances which lead to peoples’ injustices all of the time. This is a sad truth that is unfortunately ever-present in our everyday society, which has to be confronted in one way or another.

Every so often, a wrongly convicted individual is finally released early, after having his or her name cleared. Lake County’s 71-year-old Luther Jones is one of these men.

One of the biggest questions we at Lomita Bail Bond Store Services get (especially now, during the end of the year), is if a person who bails out of jail, can travel.

Holiday vacations and travel plans have been locked in for some time before the arrest occurred. Nobody likes having to cancel or change plans – it’s a hassle and a let down.

Here’s what we have to say; it depends:

  1. Unless the judge restricts the defendant from travel or limits their travel, he or she can technically still go on vacation.
  2. The defendant is still responsible for showing up at all of the court dates.
  3. If the fail this, their bail money will not be refunded or their bail bond will be revoked and they would be required to pay the balance. They will also be arrested again and held without bail.
  4. If there is a ...
