Getting Help from a Bail Bondsman after an Arrest

If you’ve found yourself in a situation where somebody you know or a family member is being arrested, there’s a right way and a wrong way to handle the matter. The first thing to keep in mind is that you don’t negotiate the arrest with the police. The police are just there to pick people up, bring them to jail and drop them off. You have to argue the merits of the arrest in court. You can, however, make certain that the person who was arrested spends as little time in jail as possible before their court date.

Working Fast


If somebody you know or a family member of yours needs to be bailed out of jail, you want to contact a bail bondsman right away. The Leon County bail bondsman is going to need to know how much the total amount of bail was set at before they can give you a figure for getting a bail bond, but you can at least get the paperwork started before you know.

You can call down to the jail and get the booking number for the person who was arrested, in most cases. Realize that it may take a bit of time for them to be booked. This is particularly the case if they happen to have been arrested in an area where the jails are very crowded or on a night when many people are likely finding themselves in the same situation: New Year’s Eve, for example.

You have to have the full name of the person who was arrested, the charge that they were arrested on, their booking number and any other information the bail bondsman asks for. Leon County Bail bonds do require that you pay money right away to get them. You can expect to pay approximately 15% of the total bail ordered for the person. For example, if the person’s bail was set at $1000, you would have to pay the bail bondsman $150 to get that person bailed out of jail.

Working Remotely


You might have to handle some of this over the computer, particularly if the person you are trying to bail out of jail happens to be located somewhere far away from you. Most Leon County bail bond companies are set up so that they can do this type of work over the Internet.

Get a phone number for the bail bondsman that you want to contact and give them a call, no matter what time of day or night. Do be aware, however, that it will likely take longer to get a response at 3 AM than it will at 3 PM. Bail bondsman, however, do work around the clock and they will be available to help you resolve the situation and get the defendant out of jail as quickly as possible.

If you’re not certain about how to handle the situation, the best thing to do is to just call the bail bondsman and ask them what you need to do to get that person out of jail as quickly as possible.
