If you gave the bail money, they have to record who, what, where, when.They looked at my ID, and record it for whatever reason.
It's been a long while, but they used to steal I think 2% when they returned it.If you gave the bail money, they have to record who, what, where, when.
When he shows up at his court date, they will mail you a check in the amount of the original bail you paid.
If he doesn't show at court and you lose your bail money forever, they need to document that too.
If you showed up and gave the person arrested the bail money who then gave it the police, they want to document that also. It is often that BOTH the arrestee and 'friend' come looking for that same money to be returned to them.
I doubt it. As crazy as things are, it would still be a stretch for them to hold that against you. You bailed out someone who hasn't even been found guilty yet! Besides, if there is something legally or morally wrong with bailing someone out then the judge shouldn't even be granting bail in the first place.This is all before the safe act. I wonder if anything has changed ???
Yep... little by little until they get wherever they are now... (someone else posted 5%?) It's not right taking ANYTHING from someone's bail - which is a "security deposit" just like when you rent an apartment.... you get it ALL back if things are "returned".I had to do it with no issues. I thought they got me for more then 2%.
