Why Post Bail

When it comes to making the decision about whether or not you should post bail, it ought to be an easy one. In short, failing to post bail increases your risk of danger while imprisoned, fails to take advantage of your rights, and reduces your ability to prepare for a successful legal defense against the allegations and charges brought against you.

Jail Is A Dangerous Place

When you have been arrested, but have not sought out the assistance of a bail bond professional, you leave yourself at the mercy of the corrections system. The reality is that jails are not a particularly safe place to be. The people that you are surrounded by will be made up of various types of criminals of both violent and non-violent offenses, which in itself presents a risk to your safety. But beyond this, illness, suicide, and disease all claim the lives of thousands of people in local prisons every year. According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, mortalities from illness, suicide, and accidents have been increasing since 2010.

Don’t allow yourself or your loved one to remain at risk when there is an affordable, fast solution to securing their release and return to the loving arms of friends and family.

Unless Denied By A Judge, Bail Is A Right

When you have been accused of a crime and are awaiting trial, you are by default going to be held in a local jail or holding facility. However, in almost every circumstance, you can utilize a bail bond to get out of jail and return to your normal life until your trial date. A judge will review the charges against you as well as any criminal record you may already have and will determine how much a flight risk they believe you are. This consideration combined with the severity of the charges you face will help the judge determine what price to set your bail at.

Like many other states, Missouri tends to have a backlog of cases that can prolong the amount of time you need to remain in holding before appearing before a judge. Don’t wait in jail longer than is necessary when you don’t have to wait at all. Contact Smith Bails Bonds and we will work to secure a speedy bail for you while you await your appointed court date.

You Need Time To Prepare A Legal Defense

The most important thing of all when considering the reasons to seek the help of a local bail bonds company is your need to find an attorney you trust and prepare a strong legal defense. Locating, contacting, and selecting the right attorney to represent you is not a task to be taken lightly. Your long-term future, reputation, and health are at stake when serious charges have been brought against you. Don’t rely on a public defender to invest in you and your case, call Smith Bail Bonds to secure your release so you can prepare a strong defense with the right legal team for you.
