The Orange County Detention Center in Hillsborough houses people awaiting trial in Orange County, NC. The detention center is located at 125 Court St. in Hillsborough, NC. In this facility, inmates have little time outside of their cells and remain isolated from the outside world. Inmates find it difficult to maintain relationships with people on the outside. They often lose their jobs and their homes.
Bail bonds exist to prevent people from suffering these consequences before they are convicted of a crime. They also help people who may ultimately receive sentences with no jail- or prison time. People free on bail bonds are also better able to earn money that assists with legal fees.
Without bail bonds, many defendants would find bail unaffordable. Courts frequently set bail in the thousands and tens of thousands of dollars. Some offenses require bail in the hundreds of thousands of dollars. In today’s economy, few people have thousands of dollars to spend on bail.
Bail bonds reduce the cost of release from the Orange County Detention Center to just 15 percent of the bail amount. For example, a bail bond reduces a $5,000 bail to just $750. A bail bond can be obtained by the defendant or someone on his or her behalf.
In the event the defendant and his or her family are unable to afford the bail bond fee, DJ’s Bail Bonds offers payment plans. Payment plans are often a necessity when the court has set a higher bail amount. To be released on a payment plan, the defendant or a cosigner must complete a payment plan agreement with the bondsman. The defendant must also sign an agreement to be present for all court hearings. Once the paperwork is complete, the defendant is freed.

North Carolina law divides felony offenses into classifications. Lower classification felony charges often result in bail amounts in the low thousands of dollars, though the actual amount often depends on the defendant’s criminal history.
The severity of the case, the defendant’s record, and whether injuries were involved all affect the bail amount.
Lower bail is possible for charges related to personal use; the courts take a dimmer view of trafficking and may require higher bail.
For people with criminal histories, possession of an illegal firearm can cause high bail. Being caught with an illegal firearm while out on bail leads to an immediate return to the Orange County Detention Center.
If the person is not dangerous or charged with any felonies, bail costs can be on the lower side.
The severity of the offense plays a big part in the bail amount. Once released on a bail bond, the court usually orders the defendant to stay away from the alleged victim. This may prohibit the defendant from returning home. Revocation of bail can occur if the defendant returns to his or her place of residence.
