Using Bail Bonds After a DUI Arrest

If you are arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence (DUI) in Florida State, you only have 10 days to challenge the automatic suspension of your driver's license. But consider this obstacle: when you are arrested, your trial date might not come for days or weeks. You could have just a day or two to plan your defense, or actually no time at all if you stay behind bars for the full 10 days. Luckily, there is a way out of this time crunch predicament.

Using bail bonds from an official bail bond agent can get you out of jail pretty shortly after you first arrive. When you are booked, you need to request that you have your bail set. If you do not, it might be overlooked by the court or clerk.

How High Will My Bail Be Set?

There is no preset calculated scale for determining bail amounts. The judge's own discretion, the circumstances of your DUI charges, and what fees the court expects you to pay no matter what can all influence the bail dollar amount. In general, your bail will reflect how much you would owe the state if you were convicted and then some; if you are facing a first-time DUI arrest, it could be around a couple thousand dollars but if you are a multiple DUI convict already, your bail might be in the tens of thousands of dollars.

The beauty of bail bonds in Florida is that they can work fast to get you out of jail, regardless of how high or low your bail is set. At Bad Boy Bail Bonds, our Sarasota bail bond agents always charge 10% of your bail amount, or a $100 minimum per charge. For example, if you have your bail set at $10,000, instead of digging up that large amount of cash upfront, you can pay us just $1,000 and we'll hand the court $10,000 on your behalf. We understand that money might be tight, especially after a DUI arrest where you might be spending your finances on a criminal defense attorney, so we do offer financial plans and payment options to clients who qualify.

If you live in or near Bradenton, you can call 941-799-FAST for our services. If you live in or near Sarasota, dial 941-894-FAST for our office there. If online is your preference, you can contact us by clicking here!

What Happens if Someone Skips Their Bail?

When a person is arrested, they are taken to the police station for booking and are held in custody until they are able to post bail or be released on their own recognizance. Bail is a process in which a person pays a designated amount of money as collateral in exchange for their release, under the agreement that they will return to court on a specified date to face their charges. If a person attends all scheduled court dates, the bail will be returned in full minus any administrative costs. What happens, however, if a person fails to attend their court date and skips out on their bail?

What Are Failure to Appear Charges?

If a person fails to attend their court date as instructed, a warrant will be issued for their arrest. If a person still does not appear in court within a reasonable period of time or provide the courts with a satisfactory reason for their absence, the prosecution will likely file additional Failure to Appear charges against the defendant. Failure to Appear charges can add an additional misdemeanor or felony offense to a person's list of charges, depending on the defendant's pending accusations.

What Happens to a Person's Bail Money?

In addition, failing to attend a court date after posting bail will result in the county claiming a person's bail money. Since bail can easily reach six and seven figures depending on the offense, this can be an incredible financial loss. If a person uses a bail bond agency to pay their bail, the bail bond agency will be responsible for the full amount unless they are able to locate and surrender the defendant to the courts.

Preparing for the Worst; Why You Need to Know a Bail Bondsman

No one wakes up in the morning expecting to get arrested and spend their day in jail. Likewise, no one expects to get into a car crash on their way to work, or to come home to see their house up in flames. Yet, despite our assumption that things won't go wrong, we purchase different insurances to cover certain accidents that may happen. At Bad Boy Bail Bonds, we can help you when you are facing the unexpected frustration of an arrest.

Many of the arrests we help with involve individuals that have made a simple mistake or misjudgment that has resulted in an unexpected arrest. For example, if you fail to pay a speeding ticket and don't show up for your court date, you could receive a Failure to Appear charge and be arrested. If you are arguing with your significant other and a neighbor calls the police, you could be arrested for a domestic violence charge even if there was no domestic violence. If you are caught drinking and driving, you can be sent to jail and charged with this crime, facing a $2,500 bail bond.

Unfortunately, arrests are fairly common here in Florida. If you want assistance with a bail bond situation, make sure to call our firm immediately. We are dedicated to helping you get out of jail the fast and easy way. We are a bail bond service you can trust. Let us be you "insurance" when you are faced with an arrest. And the best part is that you don't need to pay unless you need us. Bail bondsmen are not like insurance companies and don't require premiums. Call today to talk with Bad Boy Bail Bonds about your situation or get more information about our services.

Qualifying for Bail

Under Title XLVII Chapter 903.046 of the Florida Statues, the purpose of determining bail during a criminal proceeding is to ensure that the defendant will appear at all of their hearings, and to protect the community from any danger the defendant may impose. When the court is determining whether to release a defendant out on bail, the court will consider the following circumstances:

  • The nature of the criminal offense; for example, murder or manslaughter would be more serious than a drug sales charge.
  • The amount of evidence against the defendant.
  • The defendant's ties to the community, amount of time they have lived in the community, their family ties in the community, their employment history, their financial resources, and their current mental state.
  • The defendant's criminal history (if any), including any criminal convictions or any history of attempting to flee in order to avoid prosecution, as well as any failures to appear at former court proceedings.
  • The nature of the charge, as well as the defendant's ability to pose a threat to society. For example, a child molestation charge or a violent felony charge could deem the person a threat to society.
  • The defendant's financial resources available to post bail or to obtain a bail bond, particularly if such funds may be derived from criminal activity.
  • The probability that releasing the defendant would pose a threat to any victims.

If bail is set and the defendant is released out on bail, under Chapter 903.047, as a condition of the defendant's release, they must refrain from all forms of criminal activity. They must also refrain from having any kind of contact with the victim, with the exception of pretrial discovery, and they must comply with all conditions of their pretrial release.

If you have any questions about Florida laws and procedures as they pertain to bail bonds, please contact a Sarasota and Bradenton bail bond agent at Bad Boy Bail Bonds, we are here to assist you in every way possible!

Is it Smart to Skip Bail?

Skipping bail or jumping bail refers to when a man or woman is released from jail on bail but then fails to appear in court for subsequent hearings. When a suspect does not arrive in court on appointed dates in order to avoid imprisonment, sentencing, or prosecution, then that defendant can be declared as “jumping bail.” In some situations, a suspect may even be charged with jumping bail before he or she skips a court appearance. This would happen if the prosecution could prove that the defendant had already taken steps to avoid attending his or her trial. For example, if law enforcement discovers that a defendant has purchased plane tickets to fly to another country and will not be returning to the United States until after his or her court date, it would be declared that this defendant attempted to jump bail.

Skipping bail on felony charges is a federal offense. The court needs to prove that the defendant skipped bail or attempted to skip bail knowingly and willfully. They also need to prove that the person failed to appear before a judge or magistrate of a court as required. In the United States, a bail bondsman has the right to hire a bounty hunter who can search for the defendant before the bond comes due. Some states only give the bounty hunter three days to find the defendant, while other states will permit up to one year.

The bounty hunters are supposed to find the defendant so that they can collect the amount of the bond. If they can’t find him or her, the bondsman will need to pay the surety company. He will then collect money form a co-signer. If the defendant instead placed a lien on property to secure the bond, the bondsman may start a foreclosure on the property. All this leads to this answer: it is most certainly not smart to skip bail. If you can be a responsible defendant and make sure to show up for your trial, then our bail bonds company is the perfect way to get out of jail quick! Contact us today to get a bail bondsman who can help you to avoid spending more time in jail than is necessary!
