A felony, by definition, is termed as a crime that can be punishable by a minimum of one year and a day of imprisonment, in other word three hundred and sixty six days, it can be categorized as a nonviolent or violent crime. In regards to the jail sentencing, the end result for a felony crime is not as significant as the damaging effects it can have on the person’s public record.
A felony charge can cause someone dependent upon employment to have issues in their professional career. Nowadays, many employers are hesitant about keeping employees who have a felony charge on their record on a salary. Felony bail bonds cover bond issues for all types of felony crimes.
Felonies, even the ones that are considered to be minor, can potentially cause very significant fines and even prison time.A felony can be classified by its severity, as well as punishment. Some examples of felony crimes include:
When someone is arrested, they are most often transported to a local law enforcement station or agency where they are processed and booked. What this means is that their fingerprints are recorded, photos are taken, background checks are performed, etc. Once the process of booking and processing into the county computer has been completed, the arrestee may be eligible for bail release.
This process can take a long time dependent on how busy the staff at the station is and the actual size of the jail facility. On occasion, the booking process may only take about an hour to complete, other times it can take as long as twenty four hours. Generally the larger the jail facility, the longer it takes for the bail process to be completed.
In most jails, bail can typically be posted 24/7. As mentioned above, once the arrestee has been booked, they may be released on bail bond; if no bail is posted they may be held until arraignment. It generally will take about two business days for an arraignment. So, let’s say that the person is arrested on Wednesday evening, the following Monday morning is when they would generally be arraigned.
Basically when an indemnitor (person who applies for a bond for someone arrested) acquires a felony bail bond, they are letting the bondsman know that he or she trusts that the person arrested will show up for their day in court. If you are the indemnitor, and for some reason or another the individual does not appear in court on their appointed date, it will be your responsibility to help the bail bond company to locate the defendants so that they can be returned to court.
Most bail bond issues are not difficult to resolve as most courts will understand that a person could have transportation issues, become ill or even just forget. It is however important to find a bail bond company that understand the difficult time you and your family may be going through and offer you the utmost confidentiality and professionalism, they should be willing to hear you out, discuss all of your options and walk you through the process.
