What are Bail
Bail bonds are a monetary guarantee filed with the court whereby a defendant is temporarily placed in the custody of the posting bail bond agent. Further, the bail bond agent in Tallahassee promises the court the defendant will appear each and every time they are ordered to do so while their case is pending.
Is a defendant released on bail really in the
custody of the posting Bail Agency?
Yes, when a Bail Agency posts a Bail Bond with the Jail or Court, the Bail Agency is taking responsibility for the defendant to appear at all future court dates. For example, if a defendant does not follow the terms and conditions of the Bail Agency, then he/she risks being returned to jail! We provide the comfort of not being in a jail cell. However, if a defendant fails to communicate or check in as required then he/she may be returned to jail.
Do I need collateral?
Every case is different in Tallahassee. However, we enjoy bringing families together and with high bail amounts collateral is necessary. If you have questions, don't be afraid to call and ask our bail bondsman!
What can I put up for collateral?
Anything of resale value! However, if you're a homeowner then a signature may be all that's needed or a lien will be placed on your home based on the bond amount and the required equity (Market Value vs. What's owed on the home).
What if the person I bail out does not appear?
The court will issue a warrant for the arrest of the defendant. In addition, a notice will be sent to us regarding the failure to appear. However, we will be happy to assist you in either reinstating the bail with the court or surrendering the defendant back to custody.
if the person I bail out gets re-arrested in a different county or
Call our bail bondsman immediately so we can make sure you are protected. Communication is very important.
Are there any additional legal
In the event of a forfeiture (when the defendant failed or refused to appear in court as required) there will be court costs. The worst being a Summary Judgment where the defendant cannot be located and you have to pay the entire bail bond amount. If the defendant failed to appear due to a valid excuse, then the bail bond can be reinstated. If a motion has to be filed to vacate the forfeiture then you will be liable to pay for all legal fees.
Once the bond has been posted at the jail, how
long until the defendant will be released?
Release times vary from City Police Departments, Jail facilities, and County Detention Centers. For example, a small police department may release a defendant within 10 minutes to hour. A County Detention Center may take up to 2 to6 hrs. Most of the time County Jail releases defendants within26 to 8 hrs.
Should I get an attorney to
request a bail reduction?
If a case has been filed at the court by the District Attorney's office and the bail amount is high, then you may want to seek the advice of an attorney regarding possible bail reduction. However, a bail reduction hearing cannot occur until there is an official case filed by the District Attorney.
How long will it take for a defendant to be released from jail?
Most metropolitan jails may have delayed released
times from 2 to 12 hours.
The booking process at large Detention Centers take a few hours.
All persons arrested and brought to a police station or detention center are "booked" into a local database. The purpose of the booking process is to establish the true identity of the defendant, find if the person is wanted elsewhere in the state or nation, document a "history" of the arrest (in the local and the FBI's national database), and to determine whether or not the person can be released on his/her own recognizance or on cash bail.
The defendant cannot be released until the Department of Justice identifies the individual in custody. Don't allow a bail bond agent to tell you anything different.
Do some Bail Bond Companies
give misleading information?
There have been some incidents with clients being given misleading facts on release times and bonds not being processed quickly from a well known bail bond agent.
Can a Bail Bond Company refer an attorney?
It is against the law for a bail bond company to refer an attorney.
What happens if a person is released on Bail, but
the case is dismissed? Do I still owe the premium?
Yes, if you hired a bail company to post bail for a defendant. Commission is earned once the defendant is released on a Bail Bond. Further, Bail Bond Companies cannot determine if the District Attorney is going to file a case or not.
