Lately, there has been a great deal of debate about bail and whether it’s a fair part of Louisiana’s justice system. The answer is yes. Bail creates a financial agreement between a person who has been arrested for alleged crimes and the court system. The prisoner agrees that if they are released from jail, they will attend all of their court appearances and follow a few rules that are attached to the bail agreement. When the person attends their court dates and the case is settled, the court returns the bail money.
The problem is that the bail isn’t cheap. In some cases, judges will set a ridiculously high bail. This is when the situation doesn’t always feel fair. It’s also where Ascension Parish Bail Bonds enters the picture.
We understand how tight things are and that many of us simply don’t have the money to afford the exorbitant bail that some judges set.
The way we do things is we charge a fee that adds up to 12% of the set bail price. For example, if you need $5,000 for bail, we’ll charge you $500. You will not get this fee back, it’s our payment for posting the bail bond that gets you released from jail.
The Louisiana bail bonds program makes bail accessible for people who simply don’t have the financial resources to cover bail themselves. This is important because the same people who can’t post their bail are also the ones who are often at the greatest risk of losing their job and home if they remain in jail.
A bail bond also puts people in a position where they can make smart legal moves when they’re facing criminal charges. We’ve lost count of the number of times we’ve heard people say that they confessed to crimes they didn’t do or accepted unfair plea bargains e because they had no other way of getting out of jail and pulling their lives together. A bail bond allows you to continue working, sleep in your own bed, and even meet with your defense lawyer in a more relaxed setting.
The final thing a bail bond agency does for you is to provide you with an extra resource. The jail and court are notoriously difficult when you need answers to questions surrounding the conditions of your bail, but as a client of Ascension Parish Bail Bonds, you can get answers to all of your questions 24/7
