Unsurprisingly if someone is arrested and put in jail, they generally want to get out of jail! The fastest way to get someone out of jail is to post bail for the person. Here is the information you need to know to get someone out of jail quickly and legally.

Bail is a bond which usually is money that a person who has been arrested has to give to the court that will demonstrate to the court that the arrested person will return for all court dates. Essentially bail acts like collateral to the court and gives them a guarantee. If the person doesn’t return for the court dates, then the judge will issue a warrant for their arrest and this can be even worse.


The amount of your bail will change based off of the crime. The amount of bail set for a fight isn’t going to be the same as a violent robbery. The judge will set the amount that bail will cost, which means the amount will change depending on the judge. Usually, once bail has been set the defendant will want to be released as quickly as possible. To get someone out of jail all you have to do is pay the bail amount and the person is released. If you don’t have the funds to post bail, then your best option is to talk to a bail bond company.

Bail can’t be incredibly excessive, which is stated in the Constitution. Many people don’t even realize that bail is mentioned in the constitution! This amendment is included to prevent the government from using bail amount to raise money or punish someone before they have been proven guilty. However, judges do have the ability to set extremely high bond amounts if they believe that the suspect is dangerous, and then this allows them to keep the person in prison until their court dates.
