Do I Need a Bondsman?
When a defendant is arrested for a crime, their first inclination is how to get out of jail as quickly and easily as possible.
The only way to get out of jail until your trial, you must post bail. Since bail is usually set in the thousands of dollars (the amount depending on the level and nature of the crime), a bail bondsman is typically required to meet the obligation.
Granting of Bail
Before you post bail, you must granted the right to bail by a judge.
