Many of the calls we receive begin with a statement similar to the following, "I need a bail bondsman. I have to bond someone out of jail and I've never done this before so I have no idea what to do or how this works". For this explanation, let's assume a guy named Mudder gets arrested in Richmond, VA for DUI and his close friend, Skully, bonds him out.
So, it begins with Mudder working late at the office while in kind of a sulking mood. He gets a call from his friend, Otis, inviting him to the sports bar for some food. Mudder remembers he's supposed to meet his close friend and workmate, Skully, shortly to go over some case details. So he calls her to let her know he'll be late because he's meeting Otis for at the sports bar. He and Skully have a sort of a closet love affair going on, which is why he sulks a lot.
Skully understands but warns him, "No more than one beer; don't get arrested with a DUI and go to jail. Everyone knows Otis is a drunk. Just be careful."
"C'mon. Are you kidding? I'll only have one beer. I'm not going to get a DUI.", Mudder responds back.
To make a long story short, Mudder drinks three beers rather than one. Then when he drives home, the Richmond Police pulls him over for speeding. The officer smells alcohol, requests Mudder give him breathalyzer test, and Mudder blows a 0.10 Blood Alcohol Content (BAC).
Mudder makes a quick call to Skully to tell her what's happening. He tells her he's being arrested and she should hire a bail bondsman to get a bail bond and bail him out of jail.
"You're what?", she fires back.
"Gotta go; can't talk. I'm being arrested. Bye."
The police allow Mudder to keep his car parked in the store parking lot, so that will at least save him the cost of retrieving the car from being impounded, which is typically anywhere from $30 to $45 per day.
Meanwhile, Skully has no idea what to do, but remembers her friend, Lindsey Lohan. She figures that Lindsey has been through this before and would know how to get a bail bond set up. She calls Lindsey and explains the situation.
Lindsey tells her not worry, "Just call The Bondsman at 804-833-2785. His name is Dan and he's the best in the business; he'll take care of you. And most all lawyers refer him to their clients because they want the best for their clients and they care."
Skully immediate calls Dan and says, "I need a bail bondsman. I have to bail someone out of jail and I've never done this before so I have no idea what to do or how this works".
Dan explains to Skully that when Mudder gets booked in, he'll go before the magistrate and the magistrate will decide if Mudder is to be granted a bail bond. The magistrate may let him go on his own recogonizance, grant him a bail bond, or not grant him a bond at all. If he's not granted a bond, Mudder will have to wait for his arraignment. However, if he is granted a bail bond, the cost will be 10%, which is mandated by the State of Virginia, plus processing fee. Also, a cosigner for the bail bond is required. The cosigner is financially responsible for the full amount of the bond. As long as Mudder goes to court, there's no problem. But if Mudder misses court, the cosigner is responsible for the full amount of the bond.
"OK, where do I meet you?", asked Skully.
"We'll just meet at the jail, fill out the paperwork and payment, and get Mudder bonded out. However, it will take a little while for him to get booked in. Typically one to two hours. I'll keep calling to find out when he's ready to go and let you know."
"Sounds good. Thanks", concluded Skully.
Later, Dan calls and verifies that Mudder was given a $1500 bail bond. Dan and Skully then meet at the jail and bond out Mudder. It's as simple at that.
