If you have you found yourself in trouble with the law for the first time, you may feel bewildered, frightened, and desperate to get out of jail. Depending on the seriousness of the crime you’ve allegedly committed, you may be required to post bail before you’re able to go home.
Bail amounts vary, but they can run into hundreds of thousands of dollars for serious criminal charges. Whatever the amount, if you can’t afford to pay it, then you’ll be stuck in jail until your bail is paid or you face trial in court.
If you can’t afford bail, then you may need to seek out the service of a bail bondsman. You may know a little about this subject, most of which may have been garnered from TV shows or movies, or you may know next to nothing, especially if this is your first brush with the law.
