A Look Back at Bail Bonds

The modern day bail bond brings happiness to people who are financially strapped but have been arrested and want out of jail. Using a bondsman allows the person who has been arrested to pay just 10% of the original bond amount.

Bail bonds were used as far back as in the Old Testament, a fact that so many people do not know.  Joseph offered to pay surety for the release of his brothers.

We’ve come a long way since Biblical times but what has not changed is the need for bail bonds. A person can go to jail at the worst and most unexpected time. Bail bonds make that experience a little easier to deal with.

A bail bond is a type of surety placed on an individual who has been charged with a crime. The surety ensures the person returns to court on a given date and time. The amount of bail is determined by a judge who uses factors like the type of crime and a person’s criminal history.

People use bail bonding companies more often than not. The money can be paid directly to the court, however, you’ll pay a lot of money. Sure, it is worth your freedom but coming up with the funds is not always simple.

While money paid to a bonding agent is non-refundable, it is considerably cheaper than paying the courts directly, requiring just 10% of the original bond amount. It is much easier to come up with $10,000 instead of $100,000, after all. Plus, bondsmen offer 24/7 bailbonds Vista service when you need it the most.
