Bail bondsmen are great to have around in a tight spot; especially when that spot is jail. Belle Glade is far west of the beach and a whole different world than the metropolitan area of South Florida. When most people outside of the area hear the name ‘Belle Glade’ usually the first things that comes to mind is wide open spaces, sugar cane and the Lake.
Unfortunately, Belle Glade has also become known to have one of the highest crime rates in the state. And serious crimes in the town has escalated over the years creating great concern among state and county officials. In 2016 alone, there were 295 violent crimes committed there. Eight of those violent crimes were murder.
Belle Glade is situated on the southeastern shore of one of the world’s most famous lakes, Lake Okeechobee. This is an extremely popular place for fishermen to visit from all over the world. However, it’s also where many get into a bit of trouble by violating Florida fishing laws. Therefore, often times, what started out as a fun fishing trip turns into a hefty fine and in some cases, time in jail.
Other common types of arrests in Belle Glade are Driving Under the Influence (DUI) and drug related offenses. Since 2014, there have been more than 5,000 alcohol confirmed crashes in Palm Beach County. Many of these vehicle accidents have resulted in fatalities and injuries, but those who were charged with a DUI or drug related offense must deal with costly and emotionally painful consequences.
After someone has been arrested for a DUI or drug related charge, family members and friends are almost always frustrated, hurt and also effected by the poor choice made. Typically, it will be family and close friends who will have to pitch in with rides, emotional support and (frequently) financial assistance. However, initially the defendant will need a bail bondsman to help post bail to be released from jail while awaiting a court hearing.
The amount you pay to a bail bondsman is called a ‘bail bond premium’ and is typically 10% of the full bail amount issued by the court for a state bond or 15% for a federal bond. For example, if a judge has set bail at $5000 for a state bond, the premium will be $500.
After the bail bond paperwork has been completed and the premium has been paid, an inmate is usually released from jail within two to twelve hours.
Whether or not the defendant appears in court as required, the amount paid to the bondsman in non-refundable. However, if any type of collateral was used to pay for the bond, it will be returned after the person who was arrested attends the hearing. If he or she does not appear in court, any collateral used for the bond will be lost as the bondsman will be responsible for paying the full bail amount to the courts.
