What Is a Bail Bond?
After an arrest in Alamance County, NC, a magistrate sets bail. The bail amount depends on the seriousness of the charges, the criminal history of the detainee, and other factors that influence the magistrate’s opinion of the flight risk posed by the detainee. In some cases, a very small amount of cash may be required. In other cases, bail can be set in the tens of thousands of dollars or more.
Bail bonds allow detainees to obtain release without having to post the full bail amount. Because bail in some cases far exceeds what defendants or their families can afford, bail bonds are essential to maintaining the constitutional right to bail. The purpose of a bail bond is to prevent defendants from being locked up before they have been convicted of a crime.
How Much Do Bail Bonds Cost?
Bail bonding companies charge a fee equal to 15 percent of the bail amount. For example, if bail was set at $30,000, the bail bond fee would equal $4,500. Defendants can post the bail bond fee themselves or another person can post it on their behalf. Bail bonding can be completed in person or over the phone.

What If the Bail Bond Fee Is Too Much?
There’s no convenient time to get arrested. When a fairly high bail is set, defendants and their families often don’t have enough funds to cover the bail bond right away. That’s why DJ’s Bail Bonds offers payment plans. By signing up for a payment plan and agreeing to all bail terms and conditions, you can obtain an immediate bail bond from DJ’s.

DWI Bail Bonds
Repeat offenders may face a large bail amount. When out on a DWI bail bond, never drink and drive. It can land you in jail for a long time.
Drug Possession Bail Bonds
Bail for drug possession can be steep if the quantities are large. The most important thing is to stay away from all drugs while on bail.
Gun Possession Bail Bonds
Unlicensed firearms are big trouble. Avoid all unlicensed firearms, especially in a vehicle.
Disorderly Conduct Bail Bonds
These bail bonds are generally more affordable for people without criminal records.
Domestic Violence/Restraining Order Bail Bonds
When released on one of these bail bonds, abide by all terms. Unlike other bonds, the defendant may be required to stay away from their own home and the alleged victim. Violation of these terms means an immediate return to jail. Never violate bail terms. If you do, you may be held in jail without bail pending trial.
