First Time Being Arrested? An Overview of the Booking Process
If you’ve never been arrested before you may have a lot of questions. One of the most common questions revolves around the booking process. Because hollywood often portrays this process through television shows or movies it can be hard to get the facts. That’s why in today’s post we’re going to address the follow issue – is this your first time being arrested? An overview of the booking process.
First Time Being Arrested? An Overview of the Booking Process
Whether you or a loved one has been arrested for the first time you may be wondering about what happens next. After the arrest has been made the defendant is transported to the local courthouse or jail. Upon arrival the defendant has the following information taken down/copied-
Basic Information (Name/Birthdate/Physical Description)
Fingerprints
Mugshots
All this information is run through a national (and in some cases international) database. Where it is compared to existing criminal records. Once that is finished the defendant is either detained or sent to see a judge. One of the common questions we are asked about the booking process is how long does it take? In reality there is no real way to know exactly how long it will take. Because it is dependant on the defendant’s criminal record(if they have one). Another determining factor is the size of the establishment conducting the booking process. Larger and busier facilities may take longer while smaller ones may have it finished in no time.

Why You May Get Denied Bail

A few different reasons exist to explain a denial of bail.
Jail presents a generally unpleasant situation. If you or a loved one find themselves incarcerated, you will generally look to post bail as quickly as possible. Bail serves as a fulfillment of the “innocent until proven guilty” philosophy, and allows those accused of a crime to remain free until conviction. In some situations, however, a judge has denied bail. To understand the rationale behind this, look to the following causes.

Flight Risk
Some defendants characterize themselves as flight risks. This can occur due to a history of missed court dates, or through simple disrespect of the judicial process. Either way, if a judge has any reason to believe that an accused will not show for their day in court, you can count on denied bail.

Probation or Parole
Any arrest while on probation or parole comes with a reduced likelihood for bail. Judges see probation and parole as an opportunity to live within the law. Those who have squandered the opportunity can count on no additional favors throughout the court process.

Public Menace
Similar to a flight risk, a defendant who appears as a likely public menace may not receive bail. A judge must consider his or her own conscience. If it seems possible that a defendant will harm anyone while released, the judge can order that they remain in custody.

Severe Charges
Severe charges, especially those that carry the threat of the death penalty, will rarely receive bail. The rationale behind this appears simple. If the accused has nothing to lose through flight, then the judge will act wary of the assignment of bail.
For practically all other situations, judges will set a fair bail amount. For help with bail bonds in Las Vegas, NV, contact the experts at Lightning Bail at (702) 333-2663 or visit our website at www.lightningbail.com

Top Three Options to Make Bail

Most defendants that have been issued a bail at their arraignment hearing make their bail in one of three ways – through a bail bond, a full payment, or a property bond.

Make Bail with a Bail Bond
By far the top method defendants use to make bail is through a bail bond which is issued through a licensed bond agent or company. For this type of bail, the defendant will usually need to pay 10 percent of the total bail as a fee for the bail bond service – and the defendant will need to provide sources of collateral that will cover the total bail if he or she flees. The defendant may also be charged for added costs associated with obtaining their bond, including court costs, phone calls, and travel expenses.
Collateral sources that can be used to cover a bail bond include contract financial obligations that family or friends commit to through resources such as owned property, retirement or savings accounts, and personal stock funds.

Make Bail with a Total Bail Payment
If a defendant has enough money, they can choose to make bail by paying the total bail fee. Defendants usually select this option if they have been charged with a minor offense and they have been issued a low bail amount; once the defendant appears for their court hearing the entire bail is returned to them. Paying the entire bail payment will save the defendant the bond fee (usually set at 10 percent) and additional costs a bail bond service will charge.

Make Bail with a Property Bond
If a defendant owns property, it is possible to make bail with a property bond. However, this type of bond can be a little trickier to obtain than the first two. In most cases, an attorney is needed to file all of the necessary legal contracts required before the bond may be issued – and the defendant’s property must be valued at a price that is at least 150 percent of the total bail fee. Unlike a bail bond and a total bail payment, a property bond cannot be obtained immediately; in most cases, it takes three weeks or more to complete and file the necessary paperwork needed before the bond is approved.

How Are Bails Set?

Each county or state has a schedule of bails for any bailable offenses. A judge or a magistrate refers to this schedule to set the bail. Depending on the state, the schedule may be set each year by all court judges for the county.

Bail may be denied if the court thinks the public could be in danger if the defendant is released, if the crime is serious, if the defendant has a previous criminal record, or any combination of these criteria. The court must also know that the bail money was not obtained during the commission of a felony.
When setting bails, the court (judge or magistrate) takes into consideration the seriousness of the crime. The more serious the crime, the higher the bail is. Some defendants may not get a bail on serious crimes if the defendant is a repeat offender.

A repeat offender will get a higher bail, as the defendant cannot seem to stay out of trouble (it is assumed that the defendant will repeat the crime if he has previous offenses). The court will look at the defendant’s previous history to see if he or she has committed any of the same crimes and to see how serious any previous crimes were. If the defendant has no prior history but has committed a heinous crime, the fact that he or she has no prior history is not usually taken into consideration.

When a person is arrested, the arresting agency will check for any warrants. If there are warrants out for his or her arrest, the defendant may end up with a higher bail or no bail at all, depending on both the severity of the current crime and the previous crimes for which there are warrants.
The court will also look at the defendant’s standing in the community. This standing is decided by whether the defendant owns a home, his or her employment status, how long he or she has been living in the community, and whether he or she has family within the community.

Sometimes, the court will look at whether the defendant hires or attempts to hire a private attorney and whether the defendant will voluntarily turn him- or herself in. If the court has a criminal justice agency, it will interview the defendant and make a recommendation to the court regarding bail. Whether the court uses the recommendation is not known (depending on the individual court), as judges are not bound by the recommendations. If the court in the defendant’s state or county has a program, the defendant should be interviewed, as it may shed some good light on the bail issue. Each individual judge has a lot of discretion when setting bails.

Here is a quick summary on what a bail bondsman is:

The bail bondsman that is commonly portrayed in the media is the surety bail bondsman. This type of bondsman is licensed by state governments to provide bail bonds for defendants who are accused of one of a wide variety of crimes ranging from driving citations up to capital murder. In return for a guarantee that the offender will appear in court, the surety bail bondsman puts up the money for the entire bail amount. In most states, surety bail bondsmen are allowed to ask for a percentage of the bail amount as the fee for issuing the bond. This percentage can range from ten to 20 percent depending on state laws.
Like other financial professionals who provide loans or bonds, bail bondsmen jobs involve ascertaining whether a potential client should be issued a bond. The most common way to earn a bail bond is to provide some sort of security like real estate or valuable property, or to have a co-signer who will guarantee the defendant will appear for their court date.

Although this may appear to be a risky financial profession, in some jurisdictions around the country, the risk to bail bondsmen is minimal. In these jurisdictions, if a defendant fails to appear for their trial, the bail bondsman does not forfeit the full bail amount, but may only be required to forfeit a small percentage—in some states as little as five percent.
