AN UNEXPECTED ARREST
Being booked into jail can be a stressful and anxiety-ridden experience for anyone. Most people taken to jail after an arrest have jobs they need to get to and families to take care of. Understandably, one of the biggest concerns for those in jail is getting out as quickly as possible. Fortunately, our firm has put together this list of steps you can take to get out of jail fast in Broward.
What Is Bail?
In most cases, the process for jail release after an arrest is relatively simple. A seasoned attorney should be able to get you out of jail fairly quickly.
Typically, within 24 hours of your arrest, a judge will set your bail at an initial hearing. The premise of bail is simple.
Bail is cash the defendant pays to the court to obtain conditional release from jail. If you return to court as expected, the court will refund your bail, less any applicable fees. If you fail to return to court, however, you forfeit your bail, which the court then keeps.
If you cannot pay the entire amount in bail, and this is not uncommon, you can secure a bond. A bond is an obligation to pay the court. Typically, a bondsman (or your attorney) can post a bond to secure your release. This is called a surety bond. Again, this is an obligation to pay the court. If you fail to appear at your future court proceedings, you must fulfill that obligation. Also, the judge can issue a warrant for your arrest.
