Even with all the jails in the United States, it’s sad to say that they are all overcrowded. And because jails cannot accommodate all of the offenders, many who have been sentenced for a less serious crime are released before doing their time. Bail can help alleviate some of this issue.
For people who are arrested and have little or no criminal history, they can likely bail out of jail. Meaning, they can go home instead of going to jail and being crowded up with hundreds of people who are already there. The opportunity to bail is so much more desirable than sitting in jail for days, no matter the cost of bail.
If the arrested can pay their own bail, that’s great! If not, there is still hope. That hope is contacting a bail bond company like Monterey Bail Bond Store. Rather than paying the court the full bail amount, they will only have to pay 10% of that to the bail bond company. Some terms and conditions to this may include the need to have a co-signer and/or putting up a collateral.
To you, it may not seem like bail makes a huge difference in the jail systems. But it certainly does and we encourage you to help a loved one bail out of jail if you’re ever in that position! Monterey Bail Bond Store will be happy to help.
