What Happens If I Bail Someone Out Of Jail And They Do Not Show Up For Court?

Madera Bail Bonds

You definitely do not want that to happen. If you pay for someone’s bail bond and they do not show up for court, you will feel consequences. You will have to pay off the bail, more than you would have paid if they showed up for court, and the collateral you pledged will need to be surrendered to the bail bond company.

The bail bondsman and the authorities will track down the defendant and take them back into custody. When this happens, you still will not get your collateral back, in case you were wondering. You will also have to pay for the investigation fees to locate your loved one.

You put a lot of trust into someone if you are willing to pay for their bail. Make sure they know that you are risking a lot for them, but you are doing this because you want to support them, and you know they are a good person and can get through this. Let them know you are on their side and they will be more inclined to handle the situation properly.

Crimes Defined

Madera Bail Bonds

The criminal justice system categorizes crimes into one of three groups: infractions, misdemeanors, and felonies. Each category involves a different set of justice system procedures and possible consequences for the accused. If you are worried that the law might eventually catch up to you or a loved one, you can prepare yourself by learning the different categories of crimes.

INFRACTIONS – The least serious crimes.

  • No jail time as a consequence, only fines and/or community service.
  • Not considered a “criminal” charge and will not appear on criminal record. However, they do appear on driving and court records.
  • Crimes are non-serious, such as speeding tickets, running a red light, and trespassing.
  • The accused does not have the right to a trial by jury; a judge alone will determine the outcome.

MISDEMEANORS – Semi-serious crimes.

  • Consequences include one year in jail and fines.
  • The accused has the right to a trial by jury and the right to a lawyer.
  • Trial length is based on complexity of case and can be months long.
  • Charge does appear on criminal record.
  • Crimes include petty theft and being publicly intoxicated.

FELONIES – Serious crimes.

  • Consequences include a minimum of one year in jail, fines, and/or probation.
  • The accused has the right to a trial by jury and the right to a lawyer.
  • Trial length is based on complexity of case and can be months, even years long.
  • Charge does appear on criminal record.
  • Crimes include kidnapping and other serious crimes where threat is involved.

The thought of getting arrested should convince you to adjust any bad habits you might have and to not risk your life.
