Mecklenburg County Bail Bonds

DJ’s Bail Bonds Mecklenburg county 

The Mecklenburg Sheriff processes county arrestees through its Arrest Processing Center, located adjacent to Jail Central in Charlotte, NC. Inmates held during the pretrial process are housed at Jail Central. Some longer-term inmates may be housed at the county’s Jail North facility.

Due to the large urban area in its jurisdiction, the Mecklenburg County Sheriff handles a large volume of arrestees and inmates. Jail Central and Jail North are unpleasant places to stay compared to home. Inmates also have little outside contact. They find it difficult to maintain relationships and impossible to keep jobs and support their families.

The U.S. Constitution provides the right to bail so people don’t suffer these consequences before they have had their right to a fair trial. DJ’s Bail Bonds’ bondsmen work to assist our clients with their constitutional right to bail. We understand that being arrested never happens at a convenient time. That’s why our bondsmen are just a phone call away 24/7/365. For immediate bail bonds assistance, call 704-658 BAIL (2245).

Bail bonds make bail affordable

The number one problem for defendants and their families after an arrest is affording bail. On top of pretrial release, the defendant may need an expensive attorney, as well as face fines and court costs. While in jail, defendants can do nothing to earn the money they need.

Getting arrested isn’t cheap. Many defendants would have little choice except to remain in jail while awaiting trial if bail bonds were unavailable. The courts set bail in the thousands of dollars and up. Few people have bail money just lying around.

Bail bonds allow defendants to obtain pretrial release for just 15 percent of the bail amount required by the court. This makes bail possible for thousands of defendants in Mecklenburg County every year. Providing this service is essential because many defendants are ultimately acquitted or are sentenced to no jail time. If forced to remain locked up for months and years while awaiting trial, they would serve an undeserved punishment.

In many cases, the bail bond fee may be too much for a defendant or his or her family to pay all at once. This is especially the case with high-bail cases. DJ’s Bail Bonds provides payment plans that allow the bail bond fee to be paid in affordable chunks. Once the payment plan is arranged and the defendant signs an agreement to attend court, the defendant is freed.

DJ’s Bail Bonds provides bail bonding for all Mecklenburg detention facilities through our Wake County branch. For immediate release from custody in Mecklenburg County, call 704-658 BAIL (2245).

Felony Bail Bonds

Mecklenburg courts set a high bond for serious charges. Contact DJ’s to make arrangements for pretrial release.

Drug Possession Bail Bonds

Often, the amount depends on whether the defendant is accused of intent to deliver or possession for personal use.

Gun Possession Bail Bonds

Bail depends on the circumstances; aggravating factors increase the cost.

Disorderly Conduct Bail Bonds

Whether charged because of a bar fight or disturbing the neighborhood, DJ’s will get you home tonight.

Domestic Violence/Restraining Order

North Carolina law often complicated pretrial release. If the defendant and alleged victim live together, the defendant may be required to stay out of his or her own home. Returning home can result in revocation of bail.

Spending time in any of Mecklenburg County’s detention facilities isolates defendants from the outside world. If at all possible, defendants should get out on bail as soon as possible. For immediate bail bond help, contact DJ’s Bail Bonds at 704-658 BAIL (2245).
