Hernando County is situated just north of Tampa along the Gulf of Mexico. Historically, the town of Brooksville was called Fort DeSoto and was the trading post in the mid 1800s. It was also a place that early settlers would cling to for protection from the native Indians.
If you or someone you care about has been arrested in Brooksville or the surrounding areas and needs a bond posted, Bail Bonds Now’s bail bond agents are standing by and ready to help. Our offices are available to assist 24 hours a day, 7 days per week.
A jail bond is a surety bond issued by a licensed bail bondsman that allows someone who has been arrested for a misdemeanor or felony crime to be released from jail while awaiting their trial for a fraction of the full bail amount set by the court system. The bail bond amount is also called the ‘bail premium’.
The cost for a bail bond depends upon the bail bond agency you choose to do business with, but typically is 10% of the full bail amount for a state bond and 15% for a federal bond. For example, if a judge (or bond schedule) sets bail at $50,000, the bond amount will be $5,000 for a state bond or $7,500 for a federal bond.
The only way to get someone out of jail before trial is to either pay the full bail amount required by the court or pay a bail bondsman for a surety bond. Otherwise, the arrestee will have to remain in custody until his or her hearing. If the defendant is found guilty, incarceration will continue according to sentencing. However, not everyone is eligible for pretrial inmate release in Florida.
After a bail bond application has been processed and payment has been made to the agent, it takes between two to twelve hours for the inmate to be released from jail. Once the bail agent has submitted the bond to the jail, it’s out of his or her hands and up to the jail’s administration to process the release.
This is why it is so important to make sure you are hiring a licensed, experienced and reliable bail bondsman. At Bail Bonds Now, we know time is of the essence. As soon as the indemnitor completes the bail bond application and makes a payment, we issue the bond immediately to the jail.
