If you find yourself or a loved one in jail after an arrest, there’s probably just one thing going through your head — getting out. This is generally accomplished by posting “bail,” which usually consists of cash or a piece of property with cash value that you give to the court in return for your promise to show up to court when ordered to do so. If you do, the court will return your bail. However, if you don’t show up, the court will keep your bail and most likely issue an arrest warrant, meaning you’ll likely end up back in jail.
After an arrest, you’ll want to know your bail amount as soon as possible. If you’re not able to see a judge right away, you could end up spending some time in jail, usually a weekend. In fact, this is sometimes a tactic used by the police as they’ll arrest you on Friday, meaning that the earliest you could see a judge set bail is Monday.
