The Bail Process
What to Expect After an Arrest
After an arrest, local law enforcement transports you to a local detention facility or jail. Once you arrive at the detention facility, you will be booked and processed. While being booked and processed the officers in the facility will record the detainee’s name and what crime they were arrested for committing as well as take a mug shot and fingerprints. Personal property may also be seized from the inmate. You will be able to make a phone call after your booking is complete. You should use this call to contact a licensed bondsman from Rodriguez Bail Bonds to begin your bail process and arrange your release.
How Much Will My Bail Be?
Judges are given discretion when determining the bail amounts for various offenses and use several factors to evaluate the amount you will have to pay the court to be released from its custody, These factors include:
- the severity of the crime you stand accused of committing
- the amount of damage caused by the commission of the crime
- the likelihood that the defendant returns to court to stand trial
- the presence of a weapon during the commission of the crime
- who the victim of the crime was
- if the defendant has a criminal history
Weslaco, TX bail bonds will cost a 10% fee of the total amount of your bail set by the court. You may pay this fee by cash, check, credit card or in collateral.
What Will I Need to Do After My Release?
After your are released from the custody of local law enforcement on bail, you will need to make sure that you meet with your bondsman to go over the terms of your release in detail. Your release is dependent upon the court’s faith that you will return to stand trial. Therefore, your primary responsibility will be to appear at all court hearings on time. Failure to appear in court for a hearing will result in your bail being revoked, and you will be charged with another crime – skipping bail. A warrant will be issued for your arrest and once arrested you will be returned to jail.
Hidalgo County Jail Info
Hidalgo County Detention Center
The Hidalgo County Detention Center is operated by the men and women of the Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Department. This medium security facility is surrounded by a reinforced fence and electronic sensors that prevent inmates from escaping. This is a short-term detention facility that houses defendants who are awaiting trial as well as inmates convicted and sentenced to terms of less than one year. Because inmates and detainees will not spend an extended period incarcerated compared to other facilities, it lacks many of the conveniences of larger prisons.
