Here it is, the situation nobody wants to be in. The good news is if you’re reading this then you don’t need the information in this blog at the moment. Choosing whom to call when you’re in jail can be tricky; you only have a certain amount of time to make calls while you’re in booking so you have to make those calls count. You have to make sure that the person or people you call are home and are willing to take a collect call. It can actually be more beneficial to you to call a bail bondsman and this is why:
Why You Should Call a Bail Bondman First
They Can Get You Out of Jail
The most important thing and the main reason that you should call a bail bondsman is that they will most likely be able to get you out of jail. Nobody wants to spend the night in jail, especially for some small mistake. Bail bondsmen can get you out of jail fast and for a fraction of the cost of the bail amount. This is an important factor in you getting out of jail and it will help relieve the burden on you and your loved ones.
They Can Contact People For You
Another great benefit of calling a bail bondsman first is that you can give him a list of contacts. This will be useful if you run out of time, the last thing you want to do is try to call a couple and end up sleeping in jail because you ran out of time on the phone before getting a hold of anybody. If you call a bail bondsman, you can give him a list of contacts and he will try to get a hold of somebody for you. This means that you have two people working on contacting family members instead of just one. The quicker you or the bondsman can get a hold of somebody on the outside, the quicker you’ll get out of jail.
Always Get Ahold of Somebody
The next and most convenient thing about calling the bail bondsman first is that you’re almost guaranteed to get a hold of somebody. Bail bondsmen usually operate 24 hours a day and will answer calls at any time of day or night. The last thing you want to do is waste your time trying to figure out whom you can call and if they’re home. You also don’t want to have to worry about the person you’re calling not being willing to accept a collect call. Bail bondsmen accept collect calls, although they will sometimes bill you for the collect call after you’re out. Either way, at least you have the assurance that they will answer and accept your call.
Nobody goes out with the intention of going to jail, even if they go out intending to commit a crime. If you make a mistake and find yourself in the Salt Lake County Jail, it’s important to know all of your options. By calling a bail bondsman from jail first, you will save yourself a lot of time and headaches. Don’t go to jail! But if you do, call a bail bondsman.
