Frequently Asked Questions
How can I find out it someone is in jail?
Whether or not a person is in jail is considered public information by the law, and you can easily find out if someone is in jail by calling your local jail house and asking if a specific person is in jail.
How can I bail out a loved one from jail?
Bonding is done 24 hours per day and can be done personally or through a bonding agent. A bonding agent can either come from a bail bondsman service or a criminal defense attorney. Jail houses have a list of local bonding agents and cannot recommend any specific one, so it’s best to know who you want to use ahead of time.
How long will it take to release my loved one from jail?
With a bonding agent, the process is usually fairly quick. However, finally being released depends on how many others are in the releasing process and how cooperative you or your loved one is with the deputies. If they remain hostile, they will be placed in a holding cell until they decide to remain cooperative.
Can I call an inmate in jail?
Inmates cannot receive calls, although they are each allowed to call out. If you were informed that an inmate is unable to make calls to you, it’s likely because…
You are unable to receive calls on that line and don’t have a prepaid account set up
Your telephone is forwarded
Any attempts for three-way calls are automatically disconnected
Would it be wiser to pay out of pocket for a bail bond?
No. Not only do criminal defense attorneys get clients out of jail faster (usually within two hours), but the legal fees include jail release. Attempting to gather the amount due up front on your own can take days, weeks or even months, which is precious time you and your loved one could be working with the attorney on your defense.
Why Should I Choose a Defense Attorney Instead of Bail Bondsman or Paying Out of Pocket?
Criminal defense attorneys can obtain a bond for your loved one by meeting with the late night magistrate judge. A criminal defense lawyer is also better equipped to argue for a lower bail or better conditions or release. We know how to make the jail release process go faster and easier than traditional methods. When you pay a bail bondsman to assist you with a personal bond, the bondsman keeps the money you have paid, but the money paid to a defense attorney for assistance with a personal bond is applied toward your legal fees, so choosing an attorney for jail release is a much more cost-effective solution.
Affordable – Bail bondsmen will normally charge an extra fee and often require some type of collateral or co-signer to obtain a bond of any kind. Even then, you will still need to hire a criminal defense attorney to assist in the upcoming criminal case after getting out of jail. Additionally, if you want to pay out of pocket, it’s important to know that the full amount is due before leaving the facility. You cannot pay in installments or any sort of payment plan.
Convenient – A defense attorney helps you with all aspects of your case, including both the representation and the bond. This means you only have the work with one firm for your entire case, rather than splitting up the different aspects of it and working with multiple companies.
Sees it through – The impact an attorney can make on your behalf depends on how soon the attorney was able to get involved. If you contact an experienced criminal defense attorney from the beginning will give you a leg up, as working on the case from the very beginning (as soon as you were arrested) until the end benefits the strength of your legal representation process.
