When someone is arrested they are required to go to the jail and get processed. Whether they are given time to just sober up and release or they are given a sentence the process will always be the same. Most jails across America have a serious problem housing all the people that have been arrested. They are overcrowded and have little to no space to keep the occupants comfortable. This is a big problem and there is not a lot that can be done to alleviate the issue except for crime to be reduced and the bail bond industry. When you are arrested and booked for a crime of any kind you are sent to the jail. This is where they will process you by taking photos also known as a mug shot and fingerprints. You are then sent to see the judge to answer for your crimes and many times given a bail amount. This is where the bail bond company comes into play. Ajua Bail Bonds outlines some of the ways bail can help to reduce overcrowding in jails.
Can Everyone Be Bailed Out?
If you are arrested for any crime you are going to be sent to jail? There are some crimes and people that will be considered for bail by the court system. Not everyone is given this privilege since they take into account the severity of the crime as well as the person’s criminal history. There are some crimes that the court feels the person would be a risk if they are released or they are at risk of not showing up to mandatory court dates that will not be allowed to use the bail system. If you have a simple to no criminal background or your crime is not considered severe you may be granted bail. You can then contact a bail company to work with you or a loved one on the terms of your release. You will be required to produce paperwork and sign that you are responsible for showing up at any court ordered appointments.
How Does Bail Help Jail Overcrowding?
The great part about the bail bond system is that it does in fact help with overcrowding in the jail while still keeping the hardened and most dangerous criminals in jail. The judge makes the determination on who can get bail and then the bail bond company can be contacted. They are able to go through the courts to pay the bond and get you released from jail. This leaves the space that you would have taken up open for a criminal that needs to be housed in the jail while awaiting his day in court. The more people that are out on bail the more space is in the jail for other criminals and the less crowded it will be.
