What does out on a bail bond mean? When you go to jail most of the time you will be given a bail amount depending on what you are charged with. For a first time DUI for example, the bail amount is set at around $3000 and you have the following three options:
The first option is to have someone go to jail and pay the $3000 bail amount and you will be released. If you comply with all the court dates and obligations of the court you will be refunded that money minus any fees and fines. If you do not comply with the court and choose to disappear an arrest warrant will be issued and the court will keep your $3000. In the future, when you will get caught, the whole process starts over again. Most people don’t have the luxury of just paying thousands of dollars to the jail, therefore, the easiest and best option is the following:
Option two, which is your best and cheapest option is to hire a reputable bail bond company. All bail bond companies are regulated by the Department of Insurance. The fee you have to pay in accordance with NV Law is 15% of the bail amount. In the above DUI example that would be 15% of $3000, which is $450. This means that all bail companies have to charge the same as a matter of law. Since price is not an issue you will want to consider the following in hiring a bail bond company. Make sure they are licensed and insured and especially accredited by the BBB. You should also select a company that is willing to work with you on a payment plan of the 15% and also someone you feel comfortable with. You may want to take in account that most companies have bail stipulations where they will inconvenience the defendant through mandatory check-ins and the possibility of re-arrest if a check in or even court date is missed in error. That is why the bail company should be BBB accredited. Almost all bail companies in Las Vegas are NOT accredited by the BBB.
Your third and last option is to stay in jail until you will see the judge which is usually within 72 hours. There is a small chance that the judge may release you but most of the time there is an adjustment in the bail amount which could be higher. It is to your best interest to get a bail bond as soon as possible and get out of jail.

JAIL RELEASE OPTIONS IN LAS VEGAS:
OWN RECOGNIZANCE (OR) RELEASE – Is when the courts allow the arrested to be released for free without the need for a bail bond or having to pay for the bail. OR releases are very rare and are usually granted within 72 hours of the arrest.
BAIL BOND RELEASE – Almost all arrestees are almost immediately eligible to be released on a bail bond. This option is the fastest and cheapest release option from any jail. Within a few hours after being arrested the jail will determine a bail amount. A reputable Las Vegas Bail bonds company will pay this bail amount through a bond which is like a check. For example, if the bail for a DUI is $3000 then the bonding company will write a check for $3000 and give it to the jail for the inmate’s release. The jail will hold on to the check until all court dates are attended and then given back to the bail bonds company. For this risk the bail bonds company is required to charge 15% of the bail amount, which is $450 in the above example. The 15% is required by Nevada State Law NRS 697.300 and cannot be more or less. A Bail Bond is the fastest, cheapest and most convenient option to get someone released from jail.
CASH ONLY BAIL RELEASE – Cash only bail is when the jail requires the bail to be paid in full, no bail bond is allowed.
HELD WITHOUT BAIL – This is where the jail does not allow the arrested to be released. No cash bail or bail bond is allowed.
