When you or a loved one has been incarcerated, an important first decision is to bail out. Getting out of jail as quickly as possible will allow you to build a more effective defense from the outside. Unfortunately, however, there are plenty of bail bond myths floating around and Acme Bail Bonds is here to provide some clarity.

One: Bail Bonds Must Be Paid Entirely Upfront

In California, the amount for bail is typically 10 percent of the bond. This 10% bail bond fee will allow Acme Bail Bonds to post your entire bail amount. For example, if your bail is set at $50,000, you will be responsible for $5,000 or 10%, and Acme Bail Bonds will assume the liability on the entire $50,000 amount. If you’re unable to come up with the entire 10% fee upfront, it’s OK. Acme Bail Bonds offers 0% interest-free financing, allowing you to spread monthly payments over a longer period of time.

Two: Bail Bond Companies Are Shady

Bail bond companies exist to serve the masses and protect our constitutional right to bail. As such, all bail bond companies are subject to the rules and regulations set forth by the Department of Insurance, and we take our good standing with them very seriously. Please visit our Google profile where you can read dozens of positive experiences from other clients, as well as share your own: g.page/r/CR9gfDOc9xfSEAg/revie

Three: Bail Bond Companies Set Their Own Fees

Some individuals fear that bail bond companies will take advantage of their dire situation and overcharge for services. A reputable bail bond company, like Acme Bail Bonds would never do this. All fees and regulations are set by the State of California, giving clients the peace of mind that their case will be handled fairly.

Four: Bail Bond Companies Release Dangerous Criminals

The court system has a proven method of determining bail amounts based on specific circumstances, charges and criminal history. In some cases, where a defendant would pose a significant threat to society, bail may be denied all together. When a defendant qualifies for bail, the court has determined that they are safe for release. Bail bond agencies prevent defendants from suffering lengthy jail stays, loss of jobs, and allow them to establish a defense before their trial.
