How does bail work?

If an Inmate does not have the full amount to cover the initial bail bestowed upon them, they can use the services of a bail bondsman through Abel’s Bail Bonds.

The bail agent agrees to secure the release of the accused individual for a fee of 10% from the total bail amount.

Once the fee has been negotiated and the arrested individual or co-signor has agreed to take responsibility for the full bail bond amount. The bail agent submits the bond to the jail and the arrested individual is released from custody.

Our Mission

Our mission is to make every client feel like a valued client regardless of the initial bail amount. We have the knowledge, experience and professional attitude to help you or your loved ones out of jail.

“Being arrested is traumatizing enough, it’s up to us bail agents to make sure we make the process as quick and simple as possible” – Founder/ Bail Agent.
