Different types of Las Vegas bail bond services are used by the people in respected manners. Most of us know what happens when you get arrested. We have seen it on TV or the movies, if not from personal experience. We know that the judge decides if you get out of jail on bond, or if you have to stay in jail until you have a trial. Then the judge bangs his gavel and says, “next case”. That’s usually the end of what we see.
What we don’t see is the defendant, or his family and friends trying to get bail, if the judge has so ordered. Depending on what amount of bail the judge has set, this can be a difficult time.
If the bail is set fairly low, (this will depend on the crime and possible past record) The attorney or someone in the family can go to the court clerk and give the amount of money needed to get the person out of jail. This money is a guarantee that the person will show up for the trial. When the trial is over the person that has put up the money or “bond” will get the money back.
At times, again, depending on the crime and possible risk, the defendant poses to the community; the bail can be set very high. Most of us don’t have hundreds of thousands of dollars just sitting around in case someone needs bail. This is where the Las Vegas bail bonds comes in.
Look in the phone book and you will probably find several different listings, usually in fairly close proximate to the courthouse, for bail bondsman, or bail bond company. Just pick one and go to the office. There is usually someone there at most hours to help you.
You will need to know the full name of the person that you want to bond out of jail. The bondsman will contact the court to find out all the particulars for the case. At this time they will tell you how much collateral you will need, to obtain a bond to get this person out of jail.
