Delray Beach is one of everyone’s favorite beach towns in South Florida. Residents and visitors alike enjoy walking along Atlantic Avenue with unforgettable restaurants, fun-filled bars and nightclubs, shopping at boutique shops and of course, relaxing and having fun on the beach!
Unfortunately, it’s not uncommon for a ‘night on the town’ to end in an arrest here in South Florida. There is even a saying frequently mentioned throughout the area ‘Come to Florida on vacation and leave on probation’. The stories of why people end up behind bars are endless. However, it’s certainly not only visitors who end up arrested in Delray Beach.
After someone is arrested and taken to jail, the court will set a bail amount for the person arrested to be released unless the crime is ineligible for bail. However, if someone contacts a bail bondsperson on behalf of the individual who was arrested immediately after the apprehension, it is not always necessary to wait on the magistrate to post bail. Once bail is set and paid, the person is released from jail within six to eight hours.
The average person does not have enough money to pay the full amount of bail ordered by the courts. This is where the bail bonds come into play. A bail bond is a document that is submitted to the court which guarantees the defendant will appear at their Hearing as scheduled. A licensed bail bondsman coordinates the release of the person arrested and submits the surety bond to the jail. The cost for a bail bond premium is typically 10% of the full bail amount (Federal bonds are 15%). For example, if a judge issues bail in the amount of $5000, the bail bondsman will charge a premium of $500 for the state bail bond.
For many people, even 10% of the bail amount is difficult to come up with. Most bail bondsmen work with their clients in a number of ways to make it possible to get their loved ones out of jail. Collateral is often acceptable for high dollar bonds, but companies like Bail Bonds Now offer a variety of ways to pay for a bail bond.
The bail bond premium (fees required by the bail bondsman who coordinated the release from jail) are not refundable. However, any collateral used to purchase the bond will be fully refundable within 21 days after closing the case.
If the defendant who was bailed out of jail misses their court date, that is called ‘bail forfeiture’. As a consequence, they will have violated the condition of release and are now subject to an arrest warrant. Also, the indemnitor and bail bondsman are now responsible for the entire bail bond cost issued by the court.
