Bail Bonds Are Crucial
Even though the bail bonds business always seems to get a bad name, in large part due to the way it’s portrayed in movies and television shows, the truth is that bail bonds are an integral part of the Tennessee justice system.
Bail bonds is crucial:
- For allowing defendants to gain private access to their attorneys
- Making it possible for people to continue working while they wait for the conclusion of their case
- To help prevent people from accidentally saying something incriminating while they’re incarcerated
- Preventing the jails from becoming even more overcrowded
Most people really can’t afford to post their own bail. First, it’s a cash-only deal, checks aren’t accepted and it’s difficult to obtain cash when you’re locked into a jail cell. The higher the required bail, the more difficult it becomes to handle the expense.
