Going to jail in Los Angeles is an event that everyone would certainly like to avoid. Sometimes, fate can work against you or someone you love, however, and you or your loved one ends up being arrested. After a hearing with a judge, those who are deemed to be secure may be released from prison on bail. This means that you may go home, with restrictions, as long as you pay a fee that incentivizes you to attend further court hearings.
Many judges set the bail fee high to ensure that the court process moves as smoothly as possible, but few people can afford to pay tens of thousands of dollars for their release. Fortunately, there are businesses dedicated to helping people go through the legal process from their homes rather than from prison cells. These companies are known as bail bond services.
