Life in the Montgomery County Jail is isolated, unproductive, and lonely. Inmates are allowed only two 15-minute video visits per week. Stuck in confinement, prisoners find it impossible to live any semblance of a normal life. Isolated from friends and family, they are unable to maintain relationships and often lose their jobs and their homes.
The U.S. Constitution provides the right to bail. This right was afforded to all Americans by the framers of the American Constitution because no one should suffer the awful consequences of long-term incarceration without being convicted of a crime. Many cases against defendants are ultimately dismissed.
DJ’s Bail Bonds works to assist its clients with their right to bail. Bail bonds provide an affordable method for defendants to remain free while their cases are pending. In addition to many cases being dismissed, others result in no jail time. It makes no sense for a person who may not receive a sentence of incarceration to remain trapped in the Jail until trial. For immediate bail bonds service a call DJ’s Bail Bonds. Our bondsmen are available 24/7/365 to get our clients home fast.
A bail bond is written by a bail bond company. The State of North Carolina licenses bail bondsmen to provide this service. A bail bond allows the defendant to gain release from custody for 15 percent of the bail amount set by the court. Without bail bonds, defendants would be forced to pay the entire bail amount at once or remain in jail until trial.
In the event the 15 percent bail bond fee is still unaffordable, DJ’s Bail Bonds offers payment plans. Payment plans are often necessary when the court sets a high bail amount. For example, 15 percent of $50,000 is still $7,500, an amount many defendants and their families would be unable to pay all at once.
With a payment plan from DJ’s Bail Bonds, the bail bond fee is paid in installments. The defendant can enter into a payment arrangement. Often, a cosigner is needed. Once the payment plan is arranged, the defendant signs an agreement to appear for trial and is freed.
There are many types of bail bonds. Some are large while others are relatively small. In cases where the alleged crimes are particularly heinous or the defendant has a serious criminal history, bond may be withheld. DJ’s Bail Bonds handles all types of bonds. Here are some of the most common.
Felony Bail Bonds
DWI Bail Bonds
Drug Possession Bail Bonds
Gun Possession Bail Bonds
Disorderly Conduct Bail Bonds
Domestic Violence/Restraining Order Bail Bonds
Felonies are classed by the severity of the offense, and magistrates set bail according to the felony class. The courts also consider prior criminal history and any factors that make the defendant prone to flee.
Driving while intoxicated is considered a serious offense by North Carolina courts. Bail may still remain at a lower level if the court feels the defendant does not pose a danger to the community.
When drug trafficking is alleged, defendants can face serious prison time, so courts are apt to require high bail. Drug possession for personal use may result in a lower bail.
Felons and people caught with illegal firearms in a vehicle often must post higher bail.
Sometimes good people have a few too many and pick up a disorderly conduct charge. DJ’s Bail Bonds get them home quickly.
Domestic violence bail bonds may be subject to a 48-hour holding period. Call DJ’s right away so we can get the process started. Many people released on these bail bonds are prohibited from returning home because the alleged victim also lives there.
