It can seem like forever for the one in jail, but the bail process is relatively short. We mean it can take a few hours, which as we said is relatively short, considering the situation.
The defendant will not be able to bail out of jail until he or she is booked and arraigned, which happens as soon as possible after their arrest. The defendant learns of his or her bail amount at the arraignment hearing. After that, he or she can post bail as soon as he or she can get the cash for it. There is also another option for the defendant, he or she can use a bail bond as soon as he or she can get in touch with a bail agent.
Really, getting a bail bond is not going to be difficult; in fact, it will be an easier process than paying for a cash bail since it is more affordable. The paperwork for a bail bond can be completed in less than 30 minutes and over the phone. Once that is over, the bail bond company will transfer the bail bond to the jail, where it will be processed. The amount of time the jail takes to process the bail bond depends on the jail’s current workload, and it usually takes a couple hours. After that, the defendant is released.
