Post Why posting a bail bond may be worth it

Besides wanting your loved one back home, there are other very important reasons why when affordable, you should post their bail bond. It helps tremendously to show up in court as a taxpayer citizen and not as a prisoner. While out free they can keep a job to afford a private lawyer so the case is fought fairly and most importantly the defendant can prepare in case of a jail sentence later on.

This is a difficult time and decision, however, this is when our loved ones need us the most.

The following are the top ten reasons to post bail bonds immediately if you can afford them.

Defense Participation:
Defending charges while incarcerated is harder and more expensive. Phone calls are recorded and used against defendants.
Less Time to Hinder Defense:
Police are highly trained interrogators – Get them out so they don’t admit to something they may or may not have done.
Do the Teaching:
Keep the “lesson teaching” to those that truly want to help your loved one – no other defendants.
Equalize the Scales of Justice:
Once out on bail, your loved one will attend court hearings more equal to the prosecutor, not in a prison jumpsuit, shackles, and handcuffs.
Better First Impressions:
It means everything -especially in court. The Judge only sees them for a minute or two. Let them see a well-dressed taxpayer – not a criminal.
Get or Keep a Job:
Being employed or in school improves their image to the judge for better case outcomes. Teach a lesson by making them pay you back for the bail bond.
Ability to Hire an Attorney:
With a job, your loved one can hire a private attorney for better results.
Giving up Defense is Less Likely: While in prison defendants feel desperate to get out and prosecutors make offers. Don’t let them plead guilty to charges they didn’t commit just to get out.
Ability to Choose Rehab:
Often there is a multi-month wait for beds in rehab programs offered to inmates. Often one can be found quicker from the outside.
Preparation:
In the event that the defendant is sentenced to prison, the accused will be able to prepare their dependents, family members, friends, and co-workers.
