OK Bail Bonds will assist people who have been arrested and jailed for a DWI or DUI.
Houston, Texas (PRWEB) January 18, 2015
OK Bail Bonds has been serving residents of the Houston metropolitan area for years, providing bail bond assistance with several types of offenses. Recently the Pasadena, Texas company announced the addition of two charges that they will accommodate: DWI (Driving Under the Influence) and DWI (Driving While Intoxicated).
As two of the most common charges out there, OK Bail Bonds will assist people who have been arrested and jailed for a DWI or DUI. While in jail, the commissioner can decide on granting bail to the defendant. By doing so, the court is trusting the defendant to return to court on the appointed date and time to stand trial for the DWI or DUI charge. The defendant can have a friend or family member call OK Bail Bonds and request for a bail bondsman to meet him or her at the place of incarceration. There the friend or family member can pay a percentage of the bail to the OK Bail Bonds agent. The percentage is usually 10 percent of the requested monetary pledge. For instance, if the court sets the bail at $1,000, the defendant would be required to pay $100 in order to be let go.
The payment is a legal promise that the defendant makes to the court; he or she is expected to appear in court at the designated date and time. Failure to do so would be seen as contempt of court, and the judge can consequently issue a bench warrant for the defendant's arrest. The defendant can be arrested at any time, whether it is during a traffic stop or law enforcement is sent to the person's place of residence. In some cases, the bail bondsman might be the one that decides to make the arrest. In such a scenario, the defendant can remain in jail until the date of the trail for the DWI or DUI.
OK Bail Bonds strongly recommends its clients to take bail and appearing in court very seriously. Failing to do so can have very serious consequences.
