When someone you know has been arrested in Coral Gables and they are depending on you for help to get out of jail, you will realize how invaluable the service of a bail bondsman is. For example, paying the full bail amount ordered by a judge is typically not an option for most people. Therefore, with the help of a surety bondsman, the person arrested is able to pay just a fraction of the full bail amount.
When someone is arrested in Miami-Dade County, unless it is a serious crime, a bail amount is ordered by a judge for the release of the person arrested until their scheduled court hearing. In most cases, the full amount of bail is more than the person can afford. Fortunately, the United State Constitution demands that everyone has a right to bail. Therefore, bail bonds are allowed for the person’s release.
The amount of time it takes before someone is released from jail after a bond has been paid usually ranges between two and eight hours (depending upon the booking process and efforts of the bondsman). By contacting a local, licensed bail bondsman, someone arrested may be released from jail by simply paying a bail bond premium, which is typically 10% of the full bail amount ordered by the court for a state bond and 15% for a federal bond.
Once the person who was arrested attends his or her court hearing, the bail bond premium is returned (minus the required bail bondsman fees). Conversely, if the accused does not show up for their scheduled court hearing, the bail bond agency that posted bail will be required to pay the full amount of bail originally ordered by the court. In addition, the client who missed their court date will be charged with another crime and will most likely have a warrant issued for their arrest.
