If you have a loved one in jail and are trying to figure out a way to get them out, we understand how difficult and frustrating the process seems. However, there are a few different ways you can bail someone out of jail in Louisiana. One of those ways is by using a cash bond.
What is a cash bond?
A cash bond is one of the simplest ways to bail someone out of jail. With a cash bond, you would deposit the entire bail amount with the sheriff. Once the defendant’s case is over, that entire bail amount will be returned to you as long as the defendant attended all of the hearings associated with the case. This ensures that you will hold the arrestee accountable and make sure they do not skip their court appearances or flee.
Many courts will allow the defendant, providing that he or she posted the bail, to forfeit certain portions of the cash bond in order to pay any court costs or fines imposed upon him or her when convicted.
How We Can Help
If you or a loved one was placed in jail, you will want to make sure that the defendant is working closely with an attorney from the very beginning. This will help your case have the best possible chance at a satisfactory resolution. If you have any questions about cash bonds and your case, contact the Law Office of J. Bradley Cockrell today.
