Turning Yourself In: What You Need To Know Before You Go

A warrant may be out in your name without you even knowing the cause! From drunken driving to other kinds of petty and major illegal activities (law enforcement in the USA is strict and vigilant) there are a number of reasons and causes that may invite a penalty and a jail term. But before you actually turn yourself into the custody of police and the law officials, there are some things that you must be aware of.

Hiring a legal expert
Hiring a lawyer can be a good option if you have not already done so. The legal experts prepare you for the court, help in protecting the legal rights that you have, and also contribute to lower the penalty fine and duration.

Important aspects to consider
You need to know what crime you are being charged, the bond amount, the maximum penalty for the crime, and other aspects of the case. An expert criminal lawyer will provide answers to all of your questions. The time taken for case preparation and pre-trial can depend on the severity of the crime or charge.

Bail and bail bond
You will be released from the custody when you pay the bail amount to the court. The money provides the court surety/security that you will appear in the next trial. The money gets refunded later on. The judge sets the bail amount and the factors that are considered while deciding how much amount the defendant will pay depends on crime’s severity, the past criminal record of the accused, ties with the community and others. For instance, in California, a person who is caught driving in an inebriated condition can be fined $2600 along with imprisonment that can last for a time period of maximum 6 months. If the same person is caught for the same DUI (driving under influence) crime again, he or she will have to undergo imprisonment of up to 1 year. In Utah, the DUI cost may range from $8,000 to $20,000.

Bail bond agents
A bail bond agent is a business company that deals in bail money. The company can be present and offer its services in one or more states of USA. For instance, we at Bad Boys Bail Bonds offer bail money and bonds in Utah in regions including Washington, County, Salt Lake County, Cache County and Iron County among others. The bail amount set by the court can be higher and the bail bond agents provide the money at the time of need.
