If you or a loved one is ever detained by the police in the City of Las Vegas a Bail Bondsman can help secure the release out of the local detention facility.
What is a Bail Bondsman?
Bail bondsmen, also called bail bond agents, post collateral to secure an inmate’s release from the jail in which they were detained. Often times the bail amount exceeds the immediate resources of the detainee and in those cases a bail agent can assist by covering those funds for the detainees release while the detainee agrees to a payment plan with the bondsman.
If bail isn’t posted, the inmate must remain in custody until either released or sentenced for their crime.
How does a Bail Bond work?
After being arrested, an inmate depending on the severity of their crime, has the opportunity of posting bail for release until their next court appearance. Most people that find themselves behind bars, aren’t in a financial position to dole out the required amount of bail to be able to walk out free. A bondsman upon being hired, will post a bail bond upon agreement with the defendant, that they will show up for the next court appearance. Larger amounts to secure release may require customers to provide collateral such as a mortgage title, title to one’s vehicle, or other valuable property to cover the enormous costs involved. Bondsman ask for this to ensure that 1.) the defendant lives up to their end of the agreement and shows up to court, and 2.) provides the bondsman securing the posted funds legal ramifications and financial compensation if the defendant skips the appearance or leaves town.
Bondsmen at eBail have multiple options for customers that normal businesses do not have, and can access large amounts of funds to secure an inmate’s release at all hours of the day and night, and aren’t limited to normal business hours.
What should I look for in a Bail Bondsman
Our office works with several bail bond companies, but we are selective about the ones we present as options to our clients. I recently spoke with Marc Gabriel, the founder of eBail, a bail bondsman in the City of Las Vegas. He emphasized how important it is to look for a bail bond agent that is fully licensed and accredited with the highest ratings at the Better Business Bureau, like eBail. You may want to use a company, like eBail, that has multiple customer service options, such as in person, online, and over the phone and is available 24 hours a day.
You never want to be in a position where you need a bail bondsman, or a criminal attorney for that matter. But if you do, find a reputable company that you feel comfortable with.
