What is Bail?

Bail is money paid to a court that allows an accused to await trial from home, rather than having to stay in jail between an arrest and trial. To be bailed out of jail, a person needs another individual – often a family member or bail bondsman – to sign for them and post bail. If the accused attends all required court hearings, the bail amount is returned.

How Much Will It Cost?

Bail amounts are determined based on the severity of the crime and other factors. Many people find the cost of bail prohibitive, especially as it’s usually an unexpected expense. For that reason, A Pacheco Bonding offers bail bonds at 10% of the total bail amount – and we can offer financing with a down payment as low as 3% in some cases.
