Columbus, Ohio, 2018-Apr-04 — /EPR LAW NEWS/ — When a person is arrested for a crime, one of two things will happen: either they are held until their court date, or they may be released on bail. The bail amount is determined by the judge as the amount that needs to be paid to have them released. When the defendant doesn’t have enough money (either in personal savings or from generous friends/family), a bail bond agent can be hired to post bond so they don’t have to sit in jail.
A bail bond agent charges a 10% fee in the state of Ohio, which can easily be set up as a payment plan. Paying the full amount to the court isn’t your only option, hiring a bond agent will get you out of the slammer for a lot less money. We help with the following bail services:
Only in America
While it seems like a bail bond would be a relatively new concept, it has been around since 1898 and is exclusive to the United States. The United States Constitution even includes writing that affects the bail bonds industry, including the Eighth Amendment (which contains the Excessive Bail Clause). Bond pricing ranges from 10% to 15%, depending on where you are in the U.S.
No Collateral? No Problem.
Unless the alleged crime is very serious or the price of the bond is very high, collateral is not needed. Getting back to family, career and everyday life and not sitting in a cramped and unpleasant cell shouldn’t require signing your most valued possessions away. Simply paying the 10% fee will ensure that life can carry on as normal.
