It seems ludicrous to get out of jail without paying bail, but an experienced bail bond agency in Tarrant County can help offenders do just that. Here’s how.
Bail vs. Bail Bonds
court imposes bail as an incentive for the defendant’s return at the
time of trial proceedings. Upon attending trial proceedings, the
court returns bail. The court sets bail based on how severe a crime
is, an offender’s criminal history, and potential flight risk.
full bail is often called posting “bond,” because “bail”
represents the defendant’s promise or agreement to return to court at
the appropriate time. By contrast, a bail bond isn’t the full bail
amount; it’s a bond agent’s legal promise to pay the defendant’s full
bail in the event of the defendant’s flight.
The Cost of Bail Bonds
posting bail in full, a bail bond is merely 10% to 15% of the full
amount of bail. This makes bail bonds much easier to pay than full
bail, with a bail bond for a $5,000 bail being just $500. Better
still, homegrown bail bond companies typically accept cash or credit
cards. Some even accept business checks, personal checks, and various
forms of collateral. No-credit-check bail bonds are particularly
convenient. Since there’s no credit check, the process goes more
quickly, and average release time is as little as two hours.
