This is How the Bakersfield Bail Bondsman Can Help You

Going through any kind of legal process is not something anyone should do alone. If you are facing criminal charges in California, a bail bondsman in Bakersfield can be a good partner for you as you prepare for your defense.

While most defendants are entitled to bail, not everybody who is allowed bail can afford to pay it. And even if they reach out to family or friends, it sometimes happens that there is simply no financial capacity to pay the total amount of the bail.

For a significantly lesser amount, or just ten percent of that total bail amount, you can hire the services of a Bakersfield bail bondsman to act as your surety. This fee is non-refundable, but it will enable us to help secure your freedom as soon as possible. And as long as you adhere to the conditions of your bail, and show up to court on your appointed court dates, you will not have to pay anything more until the case is disposed of.

While it is true that there is no such thing as an absolute right to bail, when it is available to the defendant, he or she has a constitutional right against “excessive” bail. This means that the amount of bail should not be so high as to be impossible for the defendant to afford  it. And yet, because courts do wish to make it a point to secure the defendant’s attendance during his trial, even while being out on bail, the amount of bail set can sometimes seem prohibitive as to almost be impossible.

Our services are geared towards making bail “affordable” to defendants in criminal cases. For a significantly lower fee, we act as surety and post a bail bond on your behalf. Courts grant the defendant release in these instances, for as long as the bail bondsman complies with legal requirements of having a license and sufficient surety posted with the courts.

Reliable bail companies like the Bakersfield bail bonds agency, when they have been in operation for a number of years, and are in good standing with both their clients and the courts, only need to post a blanket bond for all its clients rather than for all its individual clients. This means that we can act as swiftly and as efficiently as possible to ensure your release from custody as soon as possible.
