You’re Out on a Bail Bond and Are Arrested. Now What?
Mistakes happen. A perfect example of a serious mistake is getting arrested while you’re already out on a bail bond. This is a very serious situation.
It is in your best interest to memorize all the terms of your bail and stick to them. Don’t try to find loopholes. Don’t try to see how far they’ll stretch. The best thing you can do for yourself while you’re out on bail is to become the kind of person who always obeys the rules, even when they’re silly.
If the worse happens and you or a loved one who was out on a bail bond is arrested a second time, things aren’t impossible, but they are going to be complicated.
The first thing that needs to be taken into consideration is why you were arrested a second time. One of the main conditions of your bail was that you wouldn’t engage in any criminal activity or associate with any of the people involved in your case until the matter had been resolved. If you were rearrested for one of those things, likely bail won’t be granted another time and you’ll have zero chances of getting released.
However, if the issue is something that couldn’t have been avoided, such as you’ve been arrested for a case that was already under investigation before your first arrest or circumstances beyond your control resulted in you being involved in a crime that you weren’t actively participating in there’s a chance you’ll be granted bail, but you’ll need a good lawyer who excels at making defendants look good to judges.
If the judge does decide that you deserve a second chance and grants bail a second time, you should contact Ventura Bail Bond Store again. While we’re also going to take a long look at the circumstances surrounding both arrests and try to determine if you’re a flight risk, the odds are good that since bail was granted, we’ll approve a second bail bond.
You must understand that if we grant a second bail bond, it will be completely separate from the first. You’ll have another 10% fee to pay, you’ll have to sign another contract, and you may even have to come up with something else to use as collateral.
