After an arrest, the court sets a bail amount (the dollar amount varies based on the charges and other contributing factors). Setting a bail is the court’s way of making sure that a defendant appears at their scheduled court date once released from jail. The first thing you need to do is contact Dan Mense Bail Bonds in any of the counties in which we operate.
The general bail agents of Dan Mense Bail Bonds are not law enforcement. We are an important service provided by the Missouri courts. We promote and protect the standard that not only are you innocent until proven guilty, but you have your Constitutional right to be released on bail prior to trial.
If you are being questioned by government agents, it is important that you understand your rights. You should be careful about what you say when approached by law enforcement officials. If you give answers, they can be used against you in a criminal, immigration, or civil case.
What Should I Know Before I Contact A Bail Agent?
There is certain information that a bail agent will need in order to help you:
Where is the person in custody? (Make sure that you ask the person in custody where they are located including the city, state, and the name of jail). What is the full name and booking number of person in jail? The bail agent will need this information in order to contact the jail. The bail agent can get the booking number for you if you forgot or if it was not available.How much is the bail? The bail agent will get this information when they contact the jail if you do not have it. With the bail amount, the bail bondsman can tell you the amount it will cost to post a bond and requirements to get the person out of jail.
