Bailing someone out of jail is not as easy as it appears to be on television. This isn’t to say that bail is difficult, there is simply more to bailing someone out of jail than is shown. Namely, the high price of the bail. The typical bail costs several thousands of dollars, and only fictional people on TV have that kind of money just laying around. The average, everyday person on the other hand, does not.
Most people do not have a few thousand dollars lying around to bail out a friend or family member. That is why most people turn to bail bond companies for help. A good bail bond company, like Bail Bonds in San Francisco, not only makes bailing someone out of jail cheaper, they also make it easier.
The price of a bail bond is always dependent on the price of the bail itself. In California, bail bonds cost 10% of the bail they are paying for. Say for example, your loved one’s bail is set at $20,000. The bail bond for that bail would only cost $2,000, which is much more affordable. This means that bail bonds are 90% more affordable than the bail they are based on.
