Getting arrested is almost always one of a person’s most traumatic experiences. In situations where defendants have gotten involved with the wrong friends, have taken a wrong turn due to alcohol or drug addiction or simply have no home, an arrest can often be a crossroad to getting the help they need.
A lot of Florida residents and visitors end up in trouble because they simply don’t review Florida regulations regarding fishing, boating, hunting or traffic laws. Citations or fines aren’t taken seriously and then the person fails to pay the fine or ticket and misses their court date. By then, the person fined or ticketed is issued an arrest warrant.
With the huge drug problem in Florida and throughout the country, drug arrests are becoming very common. Fortunately, for the low risk drug offender, Florida courts will often offer an opportunity to be released with less severe consequences if they agree to enter into a drug rehabilitation program. Bail Bonds Now helps to facilitate placement of inmates into Florida state certified drug programs and youth programs. We offer this service to our clients FREE of charge and do not receive any type of compensation for doing so.
After a suspect has been arrested, fingerprinted and mugshots are taken, (if eligible) an amount of money will be set by either the magistrate judge or a uniform bond schedule for the defendant’s release while awaiting his or her court date(s). In some cases, if the person arrested has not committed a violent crime and doesn’t have a criminal history they may be eligible for pretrial release without a cash bond.
A bail bond costs only a small percentage of the full set bail amount and is accessible through a licensed state bondsman. For state crimes, a bail bond costs ten percent of the full bail amount. For federal crimes, the bond will cost fifteen percent.
When a defendant is able and chooses to put up the full bail amount, that money goes to the clerk of court. If the arrestee abides by all requirements from the inmate release, including showing up for all court dates, the bail money is refundable minus any required court fees. However, when the arrestee chooses to use a bail bondsman for his release, that money is not refundable.
