BAIL BONDS LAS VEGAS

Express Bail Bonds Telephone

Types of Bail Bonds in Las Vegas

When arrested in Las Vegas or elsewhere in the state of Nevada, there are a number of possible ways you can get out of jail before your first court hearing. For every arrest, a bail amount will be set to adequately discourage the defendant from fleeing justice, but this amount will vary greatly based on the severity of the alleged crime and the arrestee’s past criminal history. A judge will preside at a bail hearing to set the bail. He/she will rely mostly on the county bail schedule but will have power to adjust the amount or even to deny bail. Bail is often denied for capital crimes and whenever the defendant is viewed as a high “flight risk.”

Cash Bonds

If bail is allowed, you can post the full amount upfront if you can afford it, though few can. This is called a “cash bond.” A money order or cashier’s check will also be allowed in lieu of cash. Even those who can post cash bonds do not always take this option. The risk is greater since a bail bond can sometimes be reinstated if it becomes forfeit to the court, while a cash bond cannot. During long trials, many also dislike the idea of having so much cash held up without gaining any interest on it.

Own Recognizance

Release on one’s own recognizance, or “O.R. release,” is the release of an arrest without any monetary bail involved at all. The individual’s community standing, such as long continued local residence and a steady job, are taken into account. The lack of any significant criminal record is also a factor in determining who is eligible for release on own recognizance. Those accused of violent crimes, with very weak community ties, and with long records will not get O.R. release, and in fact, O.R. release is relatively rare even in less extreme circumstances. There are also extra fines that apply if someone released on own recognizance fails to attend all of their court hearings.

Surety Bonds

A surety bond is what most people will require to get out of jail and is what is usually thought of as a “bail bond.” The bond is a contractual agreement between a licensed bail bonds agent and a co-signer. The bail bonds agent agrees to put up the full bail in exchange for a fee, which is usually set at 10% of the bail amount. The co-signer agrees to be liable for the full bail if the bond is forfeited to the court. Should the defendant skip bail, the bond will become forfeit and a “bench warrant” will be issued to bring the defendant to court. Once the defendant finally arrives, the judge may reinstate the bond, but this is at his/her sole discretion.

Active Arrest Warrant Bail Bonds

Active arrest warrants are issued by a judge whenever they need to have someone appear in court. Most people do not even realize a warrant has been issued until they are arrested and taken into custody. When an arrest warrant is in place, law enforcement officers can take you into custody at any time they see fit. They can come to where you work, your gym or to your home. They are not required to give you any notice before they appear on your doorstep.

If you hear of an arrest warrant being issued in your name, contact Express Bail Bonds today at 702-633-2245 and talk to one of our licensed bail bonds agents. They can research court documents and lists of active warrants to determine whether or not you have an active warrant with your name on it. If it is determined that you have an active warrant, the best thing to do is be proactive. Call the professionals at Express Bail Bonds and have a Warrant Bail Bond drawn up so you will not be forced to spend any time in jail once you turn yourself in.

Staying Out of Jail With an Active Warrant

If you have the resources for bail, you can prevent a jail stay even if you have an active warrant out for your arrest. Once you find out about the warrant, contacting your attorney and bail bondsman will get the process started that will allow you to surrender, post your bond and obtain your release. The agents of Express Bail Bonds can help you track down the funds you need to secure your bond and have the application filled out and ready to go when you meet with your attorney and get ready to head to the jail.

During the time you surrender yourself and begin the booking/intake process, your attorney and bail bonds agent will be working with the administrative staff of the jail to post your bond and complete any paperwork that has to be finished before you can be released. By working together, both processes can be completed at the same time and you will be released from jail without having to stay locked up over night.

What are Active Warrant Bail Bonds?

Active warrant bail bonds are conventional bail bonds that are written once a warrant has been issued. They are written and secured prior to the person's arrest and, if done expeditiously, can prevent any time being spent in a jail cell. While an active warrant bail bonds can keep you out of jail prior to your arrest, it will not keep you out of jail if you fail to comply with the court's instructions. You must appear at all scheduled court hearings. If you fail to do so, your bail bond will be forfeited and you will lose the money you put down to secure it.

How is a Felony Bond Different?

A felony charge is a very serious offense. Bail is set higher for felonies than misdemeanors because individuals who are charged with a more severe or dangerous offense are extremely high flight risks. Judges will look closely at the case and whether or not the defendant has any specific stipulations that might label him or her as a flight risk. As part of their conditions with which they are bonded out, the defendant must attend any and all appointed court dates.

As with any other type of charge, the defendant must agree to appear at all of their future court hearings. Most cases involve a preliminary hearing, a pre-trial hearing and their actual day in court. Although the circumstances in each case are unique, appearance in court is mandatory.

What exactly is a Domestic Violence Bail Bond in Las Vegas, NV?

A domestic violence bail bond is similar to other types of bail bonds in that they are used to obtain the release of a defendant from jail. All major stipulations still apply, such as attending all court mandated hearings and not being arrested for any other offenses while the bail bond is in effect. The main difference between a domestic violence bond and a regular bond is that one written for a domestic violence defendant may include a restraining order preventing them from contacting the victim.

How Domestic Violence Laws Have Changed

Prior to 1984, an arrest was not mandatory in a domestic violence case. This was due to the fact that offenses had to occur in front of a police officer for them to legally be able to arrest the offender. Since most violent acts occurred in the privacy of a person's home, they could not make the arrest without a warrant.

The United States Attorney General changed that in 1984, by making a recommendation that the standard procedure in a domestic violence dispute was mandatory arrest. This suggestion was made after a study performed in Minneapolis Minnesota found that the number of domestic violence dispurtes decreased when offenders realized that a mandatory night in jail was the standard protocol. With those new guidelines, the need for domestic violence bail bonds became a reality.

Active Arrest Warrant Bail Bonds

Active arrest warrants are issued by a judge whenever they need to have someone appear in court. Most people do not even realize a warrant has been issued until they are arrested and taken into custody. When an arrest warrant is in place, law enforcement officers can take you into custody at any time they see fit. They can come to where you work, your gym or to your home. They are not required to give you any notice before they appear on your doorstep.
