Each year, around 1.5 million people are arrested for drunk driving. If this is your first DUI, call your attorney right away. An attorney will help to guide you through the process of what you need to do now. When bail is set, there are conditions for release that need to be met. Bailed-out suspects need to comply with these conditions or the bail will be revoked.
What is Bail?
Bail can set with multiple forms including:
- Cash or check
Bail bond companies are capable of fronting the cash for a bond in your behalf. Buying a bond is one of the easier ways to front the cash to get out of jail. Normally the full bail amount is refunded when the court case has concluded, minus fees. The bail bond has a certain nonrefundable fee that must be paid, and the bail bond company may ask for collateral to secure the loan.
When the bond company pays for your bond, they take on risk. There are some people that fail to make court appearances, and some that just simply do not adhere to the court mandates. It is essential to know you are required to adhere to certain terms in order to obtain a bond and be released from prison.
