Facts to Know About Drug Crime Bail Bonds

Whether a misdemeanor or felony, a loved one who has been arrested for a drug crime could be facing serious charges as well as a hefty bond. The overall situation can be both emotionally and financially stressful for you and your loved one.

Fighting charges behind bars may present many challenges, so it’s important to get them out on bond as soon as possible. Here’s what you need to know about drug crime bail bonds and how a bail bondsman can help.

What are The First Steps?

When a friend or loved one has been charged with a drug crime, they won’t have the option to be released on their “own recognizance.” This means the court will want a financial guarantee that they will appear in court to face their charges. In the case of a drug crime, the court may hold a bail proceeding to determine whether or not to grant bail. If the court grants bail, then the release process can begin after the bond is paid. As long as your loved one doesn’t miss any court dates, the bail will be returned.

What If I Can’t Afford Bail?

While raising money for bail is an option, it’s also time-consuming and the longer it takes to raise the money you need, the longer your loved one will have to sit behind bars.
