10 Apr How Does Bail Work?
Bail is a mysterious topic to most people. The only time they have ever dealt with the subject matter is when they watched it unfold on a television screen. Unfortunately for them, TV only offers a very simplistic look at bail and does not give a very clear picture of how it actually works. To really get to know bail, you will either have to do some research on the subject yourself, or talk to an expert. Here at Knoxville Bail Bonds, all of our agents are experts on bail and can easily walk you through the whole process.
The bail process really is simple. It starts once a person is arrested, they are assigned a bail amount. This amount is how much money needs to be paid to the jail in order for the person to be released. The money must be paid in full before the person can be released, but so long as the person goes to all of his or her court dates, the money will be returned at the end of the trial regardless of verdict. The bail amount is often set pretty high in order to encourage people to return for all of their dates, or else risk losing all of the money.
Since bail prices are so high, many people decide to hire a bail agent to help them post bail. The bail agent will pay the full bail amount for the person only ask for a percentage of the amount as payment for their client.
