What is a Federal Bail Bond?
The type of charge made against someone determines what court will try the case. This also affects the type of bail bond needed to get the accused out of jail. People arrested on federal criminal charges will be tried in federal district court and will need a federal bail bond.
What to Expect?
The primary difference between a federal and state bail bond is cost. Federal offenses tend to be more serious and thus may have a higher bail. Depending on the crime, federal bail can be set at hundreds of thousands of dollars or even more.
This means greater complexity and risk for a bail bondsman, which is why some agencies offer federal bonds at a 15% fee rather than the standard 10% fee for state and local bonds. It’s also why a bail bondsman may require collateral or other special considerations.
Every case is different, and it’s important to understand what to expect in your individual circumstances. If a loved one has been accused of a federal crime, contact A Pacheco Bonding today to learn more about your bail bonding options and how we can make the process as affordable and pain-free as possible.
