If the amount is "0" and he is still there, there is no bond.
Once your accused has gone before the magistrate, a bail amount is set. This bail amount becomes part of the record and usually you will have bail bondsmen contact the closest of kin to try and make a deal to bond your inmate out. Depending upon the amount, it is customary for the bail bondsman get a 10% non-refundable fee (of the total amount of the bond). Once you agree on the terms, the bondsman will go to the jail...Read more
It depends on the total bail set at the hearing
My boyfriend has a bond of $50,000, he is an student, is is there anyway he can get out without paying anything? if he says that he is applying for a voluntary departure, can he come back in to USA?
The bond is set so that there is assurance that the offender will appear for all court dates. The bailbondsman require at least 10% of that amount and/or some collateral like amn automobile or real estate. So, getting out without posting a bond is not going to be an option for him. If they allow him to be released to leave the county, it would be unlikely that he would be welcomed back.
No. Prison is where offenders go to complete their sentence.
My boyfriend is serving time for posession of a lot of drugs and his bond was originally $750,000 and was dropped to $100,000 not to long ago, is that a possibility he might be out soon if his bond was dropped that low?
It might mean that he got some of the charges reduced. He will have to come up with at least 10% of the amount, so if he can - he will be able to get out.
No, the magistrate that sets the bond knows there is a deportation. They will not risk offender flight pending a hearing with that order in place.
What is the information to bail someone out if jail is there a number or website you have to go to?? And how long til that person is released??
You will have to research your options. Most bailbondsmen are local. You should talk to 2-3 to make sure you are comfortable with the arrangement. Most of them charge a non-refundable 10% of the set amount of the bail. The bonding company then submits the paperwork to the court who will release the offender from custody. The bond is in place to ensure that the offender appears at all scheduled hearings. If they miss a court date, the bond is...Read more
i just bailed myself out of Severe County Jail Utah for $1300 for possession of weed 1 1/2 grams and drug paraphernalia i"m from California i was just driving through the state but the question is if i go to my court date will i get my $1300 back
Probably not. The amount that they take in cash is usually a small percentage of the actual bail amount - and then it's underwritten by a bail bondsman that keeps that money. They are the ones responsible for you appearing at every court date (and are guaranteeing it).
We do not have a list of bailbondsmen to refer. But, when you do select one, it will be them that will determine the method of payment - this too will depend on the charge and the amount of the bail bond - and the percentage they'll require you to put down (non-refundable) to post it on behalf of your defendant. It's all about the bond company's comfort that the person they are guaranteeing will show up for all court...Read more
