Getting out of jail is important for people who have been arrested. There are many reasons for this, including the safety and protection of the defendant (emotionally and physically), and the importance of remaining silent for a criminal case. While getting out of jail is important – many people don’t understand the process for bailing someone out of a Colorado jail. This blog post will delve into the options available for getting someone released on bail.
Call a Bail Bondsman
The fastest way to get someone out of jail in Colorado is to call a bail bondsman. This is because bail agents are experienced – not only do they have knowledge of the bail industry – if you choose someone with experience, they have expertise with the specific jail where your friend is being held. This can be very valuable as you work towards getting out of jail. Of course, when you work with a bail agent, you will need to pay the bondsman fee and use surety bonds for your loved one’s release. But, this can be extremely beneficial in the long run (see below for some bail options).
When you post bail for someone in jail, there are a few ways to go about it. But first, we will explain the basics of bail. When a person is arrested, a certain dollar amount is decided on that must be paid in order for the defendant to be released from jail. If this amount is not paid, they will have to remain in jail until their court date. There are a few ways to pay bail:
– Surety Bond
When you work with a bail agent, you will obtain a surety bail bond. You co-sign an agreement, pay the bail bondsman’s fee (usually 10-15%, depending on the laws in your state), and the bail agent issues a bond to the court that is essentially a promise – a promise to pay the full amount should the defendant skip court. Bail bonds are much cheaper than other options, as you will see.
– Property Bond
When a person is released using a property bond, property with a certain dollar amount will be placed as collateral. The court usually places a lien on the property. If the defendant fails to appear for all court dates, the court can seize the property and sell it to pay the full bail amount.
– Cash Bail
Another option for getting out of jail is to use cash to post bail. When this choice is made, someone must pay the entire bail amount in full – and it must be in cash. This can be difficult for many people, as cash isn’t always sitting around, waiting to be used to bail someone out of jail.
