Arrested in San Antonio? Learn How To Bail Loved Ones Out of Jail Discreetly

Stuck Bail Bonds San Antonio TX

No matter the charge, getting arrested is humiliating. That’s why your loved one will want to work with a bail bondsman in San Antonio who places professionalism and discretion above all else. You’ll need to know a few items for the discretionary bail bonding process.

Defendants Can Pay Bail On Their Own

Once a defendant has been arrested and booked into the Bexar County Jail, he or she may be able to pay bail out of their pocket. Upon payment and other processing, the defendant will be released.

The Crime Affects Jail Time and Bail Amount

Nonviolent misdemeanors usually result in a low bail, maxing out at about $500. If criminal charges are deemed more severe in the eyes of the law, the bail will be set at a higher rate. As a result, the defendant may be unable to pay the bail outright and must stay in jail. It would be in your loved one’s best interest for you to call us at (210) 463-5561 to get a bail bond. The sooner you call us, the faster we can begin the bail bond process.

Bail Bond Co-Signing

Although you may be eager to bail a loved one out of jail in San Antonio, you must understand the financial risks involved with bail bond co-signing. As a co-signer, also known as an “Indemnitor” or “guarantor,” you are responsible for the defendant while he or she is out on bail. You also assume financial liability to guarantee the total bond amount to the bail bond company. If you want to move forward with this type of bond, you will pay a non-refundable fee and must agree to all terms set by McRae Bail Bonds.

Having Collateral Ready

Having collateral ready or valuable personal property will help you get a bail bond fast. You can further discuss types of acceptable collateral by calling us at (210) 463-5561. As with all bail bonds, the defendant must attend his or her appointed court dates. Your collateral will be forfeited if the defendant does not adhere to these terms. You will also remain financially liable for the bail bond terms.

Limit Conversations About Defendant’s Case

The most straightforward way to maintain your loved one’s discretion is to talk about his or her case with his or her lawyer. No one wants a perpetual reminder of why and how they were arrested and thrown in jail. Maintain your loved one’s privacy by discussing the case with those directly involved.
