A Few Things You Should Know About DUI Arrests
According to the Free Advice website, “most states categorize a first DUI offense as a misdemeanor,” but that doesn’t mean you should take it lightly. They go on to say that you should “not underestimate the serious consequences of your first DUI arrest or conviction” because “when you are charged with your first DUI, you need to understand the mandatory sentence and punishments associated, the nature of a DUI charge, and the long-term consequences of a DUI conviction.”
In other words, the whole thing is a pretty serious affair.
The good news is that if you turn to WGOBB then you can rest assured that we’d be glad to listen to the details of your specific situation. We proudly offer free bond advice, so if you’re in a situation where you need a DUI bail bond, we’re the team to turn to.
How Much is a DUI Bail Bond?
Like many of these situations, the truth is that the amount of a DUI bail bond can vary from state to state and situation to situation. Generally speaking, the amount that you pay could be as low as $500 if it is your first offense. Misdemeanor DUIs typically range from $500 on the low end all the way up to around $10,000. Felony bail bonds can increase all the way up to $50,000.
That’s probably not particularly helpful if you’re trying to get an idea of how much a DUI costs, but the truth is that there are a number of different factors that come into play and it’s important to know the specifics of a given situation.
Can You Purchase a Bond From Jail?
This is another question that we get asked on a regular basis, and the answer is yes. Although it may be a little bit more difficult than securing a bail bond from the outside of prison, fortunately the team at Wanna Get Out Bail Bonds can help. No matter the situation, no matter the time of day or night, we pride ourselves on being a helpful resource for each and every one of our clients.
We want people to have all of their bases covered, and that’s why we’d also like to present you with the following option: if you’re in jail, have a loved one help you to facilitate your release. In other words, getting help from a friend or family member might be invaluable. You can use your time inside to communicate with a loved one who will then get in touch with us, ensuring that you are able to get out of jail quickly. After all, someone who is outside of jail will have a much easier time speaking to us and providing us with information than someone inside will.
Just be certain to make sure that your loved one provides us with your name, your case number, and the jail you’re being held at and we’ll take care of the rest. If there’s any other information that is pertinent to your situation please keep in mind that it’s always easier and faster for us to get you out quickly if we have all of the facts.
