When a person is charged with an offense, they have the right to await trial from home rather than spending that time in a jail cell. Bail is a type of collateral posted to the jail as a guarantee that the accused party will appear in court: If you post bail, you can be released from jail, and the bail money will be returned to you after your court date.
However, gathering the funds to post a bail bond on your own can be a financial impossibility. This is why bail bondsmen like A Pacheco Bonding are available to help you get your loved ones out of jail.
What is a Bail Bond?
A bail bond is money posted to the jail to allow a person to be released until the trial. This allows the accused to return to his or her normal life and family responsibilities as well as preparing a defense.
If you do not have the money to post bail on your own, a bail bondsman can help by posting bail on your behalf. You will pay a non-refundable portion of the bail money – usually 10%, but we offer down payments as low as 3% with financing – and we cover the rest. This saves your loved one from spending time in jail while you try to pay for this unexpected expense.
