Are there different types of bail bonds?

 

When filing a bail bond it is important to know what charges have been brought against the defendant. While the paperwork may not be much different, the filing process may be, depending on the facility that the person is being held at. However, it is nice to know that there are bail bonds available for a wide range of crimes. Remember though, it is up to the judge to determine the bail amount and if the defendant is even eligible for jail, based on the current crime and their criminal history.

Felony Bail Bond

Crimes that result in some sort of bodily harm or involve high dollar crimes will generally result in felony charges. There are many types of felonies and they include assault, armed robbery, grand theft, larceny, arson, rape and murder. Felonies may result in very high bail amounts, but using a bail bond will reduce the cost to as little as 10 percent of the total cost, ensuring that your friend, relative or other loved one can be set free as they await trial.

Misdemeanor Bail Bond

People who are charged with misdemeanors were caught committing crimes that often don't result in harm to a person. This may include vandalism, trespassing, simple assault, discharging a firearm in certain areas, negligent driving, petty theft, shoplifting, indecent exposure and other smaller crimes.

DUI Bail Bond

One of the most common crimes in America is driving under the influence. If your loved one was caught above the legal limit you can rely on a bail bond to get them out of the holding cell prior to their initial court dates. It is important to get someone out of jail with a bail bond so that they have time to speak with a lawyer about their case.

Possession Bail Bond

Another common issue is possession of drugs, including cocaine, marijuana, meth, heroin and others. Getting busted with drugs can often be a good thing, as it can help a person get clean, but you don't want them sitting in a jail as they come down off their high. Bail them out of jail and get them the help they need.
