Most bail bonds will ask you to pay 10 percent as a premium for hiring a bail bond agent. The bail bond company is taking on risk by fronting the money for the bail, which is why it’s common to see an upfront cost. Keep in mind, the 10 percent is not usually returned even if the person is acquitted of all charges.
How Much Does it Cost to Get Out of Jail?
The cost is based on a variety of factors. In Utah there is a 20% bail premium and a 10% minimum bail. The overall cost is set by the judge, so it’s not easy to say the exact figure as its based on several factors from how many prior arrests, the nature of the crime, etc.
If you are considering providing bail, you must be certain they will attend court appearances. Failure to attend court can end up leading to the bond to be revoked and the individual to have a warrant for their arrest issued.
