The Durham County Jail is no place to spend time awaiting trial. Inmates receive little time outside of their cells, have restricted telephone access, and are only allowed short visits with friends and family. In many ways, being detained in the Durham County Jail is no different than serving a sentence at a North Carolina penitentiary.
The main difference is that many people housed in the county jail have not been convicted of a crime. In America, we believe in the principle of innocent until proven guilty, which is a big part of why bail is a constitutional right. If you or a loved one are in custody in Durham County, arrange for a bail bond at the first available opportunity.

North Carolina law mandates that a magistrate must assign bail to each defendant shorty after an arrest. This process generally takes a few hours from the time charges are filed. Though a magistrate must make a ruling on bail quickly, the magistrate is under no obligation to grant bail in certain circumstances.
The magistrate may deny bail if the defendant faces charges of a particularly heinous nature. Bail can also be denied in cases where the defendant poses a danger to the community or to certain individuals. Courts may also withhold bail for defendants who are likely to flee the jurisdiction.
In other cases, the magistrate will set a bail amount. Magistrates follow guidelines that require certain bail amounts based on the offense. In addition, they consider the defendants prior criminal history and any other factor that shows how much of a flight risk the defendant poses.
Bail amounts are often substantial. Bail bonds make pretrial release affordable for defendants by reducing the cost to 15 percent of the bail amount. In addition, when 15 percent of the fee is also unaffordable, the defendant or a cosigner can sign up for a DJ’s Bail Bonds’ payment plan. Once the payment plan is set and the defendant signs an agreement to appear in court, the defendant is freed. Call 704-658 BAIL (2245).
