Felony Bail Bonds
A felony crime is not something to be taken lightly. Usually felonies mean higher jail time, harsher sentences and more bail. However, bail is set before an actual crime is fully committed. for this reason, there are many, many instances where a formal felony is charge, bail is set and paid, and then a person is acquitted of those felony charges. For this reason, we believe that you should not have to be locked up, while awaiting your actual court cases.
What is a Felony
To put it simply, a felony is the most serious type of crime a person can commit. An infraction is the lightest crime, and a misdemeanor is a medium crime. Typically speaking, felonies can result in long prison sentences, very harsh monetary penalties and, often times, complete loss of freedoms. However, it is not up to us to determine whether you are guilty or not. If the courts decide that, based on your personal record and the crime committed, you are eligible for a bail, we will be there for you. There are other companies that will not offer bail bonds to felonies, however, we certainly will.
In a felony case, the bail determination is worked just like any other. The judge will take in to account the severity of the felony crime and take a look at your criminal history. If the court thinks that you are safe to have out in public, and that your felony doesn’t put others in danger, they will often grant you bail. However, if the felony you are being charged with is something that is considered extremely dangerous, such as murder or assault, the court has every right to deny you bail completely.
Unlike other types of crimes, felony charges usually result in very high bail prices. The level at which your bail is set is determine by personal record and severity of the crime. It is often the case that, in felony bail hearings, a bail will be set that is impossibly high, specifically so that someone will not be able to afford it. We can issue bail bonds up to a certain dollar amount, but we cannot issue them for every level of bail. If you are facing a felony bail, that seems incredibly high, let us know so that we can do our best to work with you on it.
Why We Offer
Not every bail bond company out there will issue bail bonds for felony charges. However, we issue them because we truly believe that everyone is innocent until proven guilty. We know that mistakes happen in our court systems all of the time. And, you should not be punished for someone else’s mistake. For this reason, we are proud to offer bail bonds to most felony bail cases. It’s important to know that there are cases where we will not offer bonds for, and that decision is completely up to us, and our own discretion.
