Houston, Texas (PRWEB) September 09, 2014
OK Bail Bonds, which has served the Houston metropolitan area for several years, recently announced the arrival of mobile bonding services. Due to this new service option, the bail process has become easier, and more convenient.
When a person is arrested and sent to jail, the commissioner can choose to keep the person incarcerated until the date and time of trial, or set bail for the defendant. By setting bail, the commissioner has a certain level of trust in the defendant appearing in court to answer to his or her criminal charges, rather than fleeing or disappearing. The defendant can be freed by paying the money that the court requests. However, since some people cannot afford bail, they pay a percentage of the bail to a bail bonds company. It is the payment of this portion of the bail that OK Bail Bonds has made more convenient by introducing its mobile bonding service.
Bail bond agents from the company can now meet at the designated place -- or, in this case, where the person is incarcerated. The jailed individual can arrange for the agent to meet a friend or family member at the front counter of the jail and make the payment on his or her behalf. Once that is fulfilled, the defendant is let go on his or her recognizance. The payment represents a promise to appear in court on the day that the commissioner picks. If the defendant does not show up, the judge would invalidate the bail. The consequence could be a return to jail, and the defendant may be held there until the commissioner sets a reassigned date and time for the trial.
