Have you ever been arrested before?
Come on now, don’t be shy. Admitting you’ve served some jail time doesn’t disqualify you as a human. In fact, it makes you feel more human. People make mistakes, after all. Some do it unintentionally like sleepy drivers hitting a post or a misguided child doing something criminal just because “someone bad” bribed them with candy. A few others do it with malice, though – for reasons no normal person can comprehend. Still, a crime is a crime. And laws exist to be followed. So, no matter the reason, bad acts beget you jail time.
So, I’ll ask again: Have you ever been arrested before?
I know I have – well, almost. I was taken in as an accomplice for burglary just because I was the roommate of a petty boarding house thief. At the time, the same question keeps circling and circling around my head. Can my luck get any worse? Well, what else can I say? I have been an unlucky guy from the moment I stepped on this Earth up to now (it’s getting better, though). I would always get scolded for toys I didn’t break – thanks to my dearest sister, by the way – and get accused of cheating during exams when all I ever did was help friends out. What a cursed fate, right? But hey, at the end of the day, all’s well that ends well. I’m too old for grudges.
Still, it’s never a fun trip to prison – especially when you have to be detained for more than 24 hours. If you’re lucky, you might even get headlined and your old folks would faint hearing about the news. All sarcasm aside, my case really was lucky. I was proven innocent just after a few interrogations – well, most probably because I was really innocent. But to all my brothers and sisters out there whose charms never seem to work, I feel you.
So, allow me to introduce you to one of the finer solutions to jail time – Bail Bonds.
No. Bail bonds aren’t relatives of James Bond, you doof. It’s basically borrowed get-out-of-jail money. But of course, you knew that – right? More about bail bonds here: https://www.investopedia.com/terms/b/bail-bond.asp.
Most petty crimes are open for bail. This means that after rendering your required detention time or “time out” as others would term it, you can bail your way out of that stinky prison cell. But as you may already have guessed, to pay for a crime – no matter how small – isn’t cheap. Otherwise, crime rates would skyrocket everywhere. Crime penalties are pretty overbearing and not everyone can afford them.
Still, you can’t just stay locked up forever now – can you?
This is where bail bonds come in.
Bail bonds are bonded cash loans offered to people who have been arrested for a certain crime or legal violation that requires bail payment. Bail bonds come in handy for people who are allowed to bail but don’t (currently) have the money to do so. Of course, there will be bonded interest but hey, that’s better than spending another night in jail, right?
Unless, you would very much prefer to take advantage of the free food and lodging.
If you or someone you know is currently entangled with a “legal situation,” you should try and get in contact with a bail bond agency as soon as possible. After all, the sooner you clear the situation up, the sooner you can get back to your usual everyday life. And did I mention you can avoid unwarranted scrutiny and prying this way?
Question is, how do you know which company to trust?
Well, here are a few tell-tale signs:
Trustworthy Bail Bond Companies Are Transparent in Everything They Do
A good and trustworthy company is never afraid to show what’s happening inside and outside the company. They won’t try to disguise anything – not their product coverage, not their interest rates and penalties, and not the way they process your application. Everything is disclosed right then and there; no hidden charges or sudden interest inflation. Bluestar Bail Bonds, for example, stick to what has been agreed on and will only charge exactly what you owe them. If you hear about companies overcharging their clients because of “unexpected or unprecedented” factors, you should really steer clear from them. You should only contract with bail bond agencies who know the meaning behind the word trust.
Trustworthy Bail Bond Companies Are Not All About the Profit
All bail bond agencies will charge you interest for the money you owe them. You just have to find an agency that won’t take advantage of your situation and use it solely for their benefit. Choose to contract with an agency that is not only after its own personal gain but genuinely cares about your situation as well. Charging interest is okay; making you bankrupt is not.

Trustworthy Bail Bond Companies Offer Fair Help
That’s right; fair help for everyone. This means they offer equal services and equal prices for people of all kinds in all places. It’s hard to deal with a company that has a lot of prejudices. You should find one that shows fair treatment at all times. You’re already in a rut. A bad company can only worsen the situation. Makes sense?
Bail yourself out in no time with a trustworthy bail bond agency!
