If you receive a call for help from a friend, roommate, or someone you are close with, asking you help them arrange for San Jose bail bonds service you should absolutely help. Jail can be an unpleasant and scary place and no one wants to see someone they care for remain behind bars any longer than they have to. Bailing someone out of jail does more than get them out of custody. It allows them time to consult with an attorney to help prepare their case. It also allows them to return to their family, job or schooling while the matter is being resolved.
You should know that there is a certain amount of responsibility that comes with signing a bail contract. First and foremost you are taking responsibility the defendant will go to court. If the defendant misses court because they are sick, running late or forgot this can be easily resolved. On the other hand, if the defendant decides to flee from justice, when you sign the contract you are guaranteeing their bail will be paid in full. The good news is the national bail skip rate is very low, about 3%. But the bottom line is that unless you are certain the defendant will go to court you may want to reconsider signing on the dotted line.
