Know Your Rights
Just like anyone else, inmates have rights that are guaranteed to them by the US Constitution. These include the right to a fair hearing in court, humane facilities, and mental health treatment.
The constitution also protects bail bonds from being excessive. Everyone, if not a threat to the public, has the right to be released on bail.
You also have a right to due process and an attorney. Knowing your rights can also speed up the process of your release.
Get an Attorney
Depending on the crime and your circumstances, an attorney might be able to get you released on personal recognizes instead of a bail bond.
If this option is not possible for you, then your attorney will advise you on the different options. They will help you decide which option will work best for you.
You will also want an attorney if you are being questioned about the crime. Attorneys will help keep you from saying the wrong thing and getting into even more trouble. This is on top of getting you out of jail.
Attorneys can also work on lowering your bail. But if that does not work, they can help get you in contact with a good bail bonds company in your area.
