24 Hour Emergency Pontotoc County Bail Bondsman

When you need to get a locked up loved one out of jail in a hurry, a bondsman can be used. The unfortunate thing about bail is that it is often expensive and the average person really can not afford to raise that money to have their family member back home with them.

Bail is cash, a bond, or property that an arrested person offers to a court to ensure that he or she will appear back in court when ordered to do so. If the defendant doesn’t show up, the court may keep the bail and issue a warrant for the defendant’s arrest.

If a suspect violates a condition, a judge may revoke bail and order the suspect re-arrested and returned to jail. Some bail conditions, such as a requirement that a suspect “obey all laws,” are common.

Bail can take any of the following forms:

cash or check for the full amount of the bail
property worth the full amount of the bail
a bond (that is, a guaranteed payment of the full bail amount), or
a waiver of payment on the condition that the defendant appear in court at the required time (commonly called release on one’s “own recognizance”).

A bond that costs 10% of the bail amount may sound like a good deal compared to posting cash bail, but buying a bond may cost more in the long run. If the full amount of the bail is paid, it will be refunded (less a small administrative fee) when the case is over and all required appearances have been made. In contrast, a bond seller’s fee is nonrefundable. In addition, the bond seller may require “collateral.” This means that the person who pays for the bail bond must also give the bail bondsman a financial interest in some of the person’s other property. If the suspect fails to appear in court, the bond seller can cash in on this interest.

Sometimes people are released “on their own recognizance,” or “O.R.” A defendant released on O.R. must simply sign a promise to show up in court and is not required to post bail.

A defendant commonly requests release on his or her own recognizance at the first court appearance. The defendant then asks for low bail if the judge denies the request.

In general, defendants who are released on O.R. have strong ties to the community, making them unlikely to run away. Factors that may convince a judge to grant an O.R. release include:

having family members (most likely parents, a spouse, or children) living in the community
having resided in the community for many years
being self-employed
having little or no past criminal record, or only criminal problems that were minor and occurred many years earlier, and
having been charged with previous crimes and having always appeared as required.
