Daylight Savings is here, the unofficial mark of spring’s arrival. The darkest, coldest, and gloomiest of our days have gone, or so most people think. Others may still be battling this solemn time in the form of dealing with a loved one in jail. When will they get out? When will this whole thing be over? What happens now?
If a person who was recently arrested is eligible to post bail, they can do so by paying the court 100% of their bail, or they can hire a bail bondsman, whom they pay 10% of the full bail amount to. Friends and family of the defendant will also help oversee and organize how bail is paid since it would be slightly more challenging and time consuming for the defendant to organize this on their own, from behind bars.
The moment a defendant is freed from jail, the mood changes drastically, just like the change from winter to spring. Now, the defendant feels more hopeful that they will get past this stressful time. They are calmer knowing they have loved ones supporting them. They are determined to not let what had transpired earlier, be a reflection of their character. They have a more positive attitude to take care of the proper steps in the next days, weeks, and months.
