    What Do You Need to Do to Get Bail Bonds in Brazoria County?

    Mistakes happen, and people do things the regret. Sometimes these mistakes can land you in jail. When that happens, you may need bail bonds in Brazoria County.

    Getting your ducks in line
    Hopefully, you have a cash reserve or line of credit you can use to pay for bail. If not, call a reliable, affordable bail bonds company and discuss your financial options with an agent. Don’t be discouraged if your bank account will not cover your bail; when you use a bail bonds agent to get out of jail, you usually only have to pay 10 percent of the total to the agent.

    Don’t even have that? Most bail bonds agents are willing to make payment arrangements with defendants even when they can’t come up with the whole 10 percent in a lump sum. If you are a resident of Brazoria County with a job and/or family and community ties to the area, most bail bonds agents will take a chance on you and write you a bond.

    Many people wonder why, after they make their call to a bail bonds company, they still may spend hours sitting in a holding area before they are released. They may even question whether the bonds agent is doing his or her job. but rest assured, the delay does not lie with the bail bonds agent.
     

    Factors that can delay your release from jail

    • The time of your arrest frequently is a factor. If you’re being booked during shift-change, or after midnight when there are fewer officers on duty, it can take longer.
    • The charges also matter. DWIs, public intoxication, etc., may mandate a 12-hour minimum to make sure that you are sober when released. More serious charges like weapons crimes or homicide also can delay your release, as the terms may have to be approved by the court.
    • Your criminal history. The court might have concerns that you are a poor candidate for bail if you have a history of missing court dates or fleeing the court’s jurisdiction. While your attorney may ultimately be able to prevail and get you released, it can be a lengthy process.
    • The jail census itself. While this factor is totally out of your control, if they are filled to capacity, this may ultimately work in your favor, as jailers will be looking to release low-risk, non-violent defendants. However, the process itself can take longer when there are many incarcerated inmates.

     
    The best course of action is to sit tight, don’t discuss your case or inquire into others’ and wait for your release.

    Sometimes bad things happen to good people. Simply being arrested and charged with a crime does not make one a bad person, or even a criminal. Despite the mistake (or even intentional act) that caused you to wind up behind bars in Brazoria County, almost everyone who is arrested is entitled to bail. Below is some vital information about the bail bonds process in Brazoria County.
     

    The booking process

    Immediately upon arrival at the Brazoria County Jail, inmates undergo certain processes that are collectively referred to as “booking.” Inmates get fingerprinted, have their mugshots taken and are searched for weapons, drugs or other contraband. At some point, inmates will be offered the opportunity to make at least one phone call to arrange their release. But to whom should your call be made?
     

    Welcome to the Cellphone Era

    There is one problem. If you are old enough to remember a time before cellphones, chances are good that you will also remember how everyone used to memorize other people’s phone numbers. Most knew at least a half dozen different friends’ and relatives’ telephone numbers, and if they forgot those numbers, they could always look them up in the telephone directory.

    With the proliferation of cellphones, that is no longer the case. People change numbers and providers frequently, and there is no cellphone number directory to consult. Don’t waste your one phone call on a wrong number. Instead, call a bail bondsman as soon as you are able. He or she will come to you at the jail and make the financial arrangements to get you released.
