Los Angeles Bail Bonds Services: When Jail is “Punishment for Poverty”


At the moment, there are over 730,000 people nationwide locked up in local jails, most of whom are non-violent offenders who don’t have the means to post bail. The actual number of violent crimes is steadily declining, even cut to half in the past two decades, but the number of people being admitted to jails have doubled during the same period.

Generally, convicts will be sent to prison to carry out their sentences, while those awaiting their own hearing or trial are sent to jail. Currently, there are over 231 people sent to jail for every 100,000 US residents, and some of them will resort to pleading guilty just to have a shorter sentence and get back to their lives as soon as they can.
