Things can get crazy in Las Vegas, especially for visitors. It isn’t that unusual for someone visiting the city to get carried away and do something he or she would never in a million years do in ordinary circumstances. Everything about Las Vegas is extraordinary, and sometimes it can be too much and someone crosses the line and breaks the law. Of course, people can also be falsely accused or appear to cross the line when in fact they were skirting with disaster, but not actually breaking the law. Whatever the situation, if the court says a person must have bail posted to be released from jail, his or her loved ones have little choice but to arrange bail bonds.
What Exactly Are Bail Bonds?
Bail bonds are the court’s insurance that the accused is going to attend all required court dates. The person obtaining the bond puts up the money required by the court, and if the accused attends all court dates as required, the money is returned. If the accused fails to attend court, however, the court keeps the money.
If you chose to use a professional bail bonds service such as 911 Bail Bonds, they will handle all the details and even work to ensure the accused does attend court on the correct dates. In Nevada, the law states that bail bonds services must charge 15 percent. At the end of the court process, if the accused has followed all conditions of bail, bail bonds are exonerated, which simply means that they are no longer active.
