If you or a loved one have recently been arrested and charged with a misdemeanor, you may worried and stressed out. Today we will go over what misdemeanor bail is, and how we can help you through this difficult time.
When the police arrest someone, they determine the severity of the alleged crime, and charge that person with the level they believe is appropriate. Felony charges are among the most severe, and are usually reserved for gran theft, murder, and running from law enforcement. Misdemeanor charges are less severe, and dare typically only punishable by up to a year in prison.
After being charged with a misdemeanor, an individual will be arrested and take to jail to await a trial. However, that person can await trial from home instead, thanks to the bail process. After arrest, every person is given a bail hearing, at which time the judge determines a monetary amount the person can pay to be released from jail until his or her trial.
While this is useful, bail can sometimes be very expensive. If you or a loved one are unable to afford the full bail amount, we can assist you with bail bonds services. Instead of paying the full bail amount, you only need to pay between 10% and 15% to leave jail that same day. To learn more, or to get started, give us a call today at 916-663-2245!
