It sounds strange that the release of an accused criminal on bail can benefit the community, but it’s true. Most people don’t realize that the defendant can not be a threat to the community in order to qualify for the option of bail. On top of that, people don’t realize that by using a bail bondsman, the financial responsibility of ensuring the defendant makes it to all court dates falls onto the bail agents instead of the tax payers in the community.
When someone is out on their own recognizance and misses their court date, the local police or sheriffs are responsible for bringing them back in to the court. Depending on how well the department is staffed they may go search for the defendants, costing tax-payers dollars, or they may simply wait for the defendant to get into trouble again. Does that sound like a good idea to you?
If a defendant uses a bail bonds company to be released from jail, the bail agents become financially responsible for making sure the defendant makes it to all of his/ her court dates. If one is missed the bail agent immediately begins to contact the defendant and make sure that he/ she is taken to the court at the bail company’s expense, not the taxpayer’s. This sounds better for the community, doesn’t it?
Before bail for a defendant can be set by a judge, a pretrial takes place to determine whether or not the defendant qualifies for bail. Under current federal laws, the defendant can be denied bail if; the crime was violent in nature, the maximum sentence for the crime is life imprisonment or death, a drug offense with a maximum offense of more than 10 years, the defendant is a repeat felon, the defendant poses a flight risk or is a danger to the community.
If someone falls into one of those categories, they can not be bailed out. This means someone who has been bailed out won’t be a threat to their community. If you don’t believe this you can rely on Orange County Bail Bond Store’ trustworthy bail agents to keep their clients in check and make sure the community is safe for everyone.
