If a friend or loved one gets arrested, charged with a crime, and as is currently being held in custody in the Dekalb County Jail, you can bail them out by enlisting the services of a bonding company. Everyone makes mistakes and most people deserve a second chance. Moreover, some people get charged for crimes they did not commit. It is especially useful to have a bail bondsman at your service when this happens and understand how bail bonds work.
There are two options for getting a defendant released from custody in Dekalb County.
1. You can post bail directly to the jail for the entire amount of the bond.
2. You can opt to hire a bail agent (bondsman) who works for a reputable bonding company that is licensed in Dekalb County to get the defendant out of jail.

Bond amounts are dictated by the Dekalb County court system and the judge has a lot of leeway in setting the bail amount in any defendant’s case. They’ll take into consideration: the person’s criminal history, their financial ability to pay the bail amount, the defendant’s flight risk, if gang activity was involved in the crime, the severity of the crime, and any potential threat to the community.
If the judge deems the defendant’s charges ‘low risk,’ they may just let the person be released on their own recognizance, also known as an ROR bond or signature bond. If there is significant risk, such as in capital murder crimes, than bail may be denied altogether. Then, there’s everything in-between. Our bail bondsmen don’t mess around with haggling or finessing rates. Provided bail has been set and you qualify to be a co-signer on the bond, a straight percentage of the total bond amount will be required plus any jail fees to get the defendant released from Dekalb County jail.
