Most people don’t deal with the criminal justice system on a regular basis. Because of this, panic tends to set in when someone is arrested. Thankfully, we deal with the criminal justice system on a daily basis. We have years of experience, and can help you when your loved has been arrested. One of the most common questions we hear is, “can you bail someone out of jail on the weekend?” Here is our answer.
Weekends: Common Times for an Arrest
The weekends are a common time for arrests. This is because people are out having fun and enjoying life. This leads to more mistakes and bad choices. For example, DUI arrests, arrests for harassment, or assault can be the result of a night out drinking with friends. Arrests can happen at the time of the event, or at a later date after a police officer has completed investigations.
Can You Bail Someone Out of Jail on the Weekend? It Depends on the Crime
The short answer to the question, “can you bail someone out of jail on the weekend?” is: It depends on the crime and the situation. Certain offenses have a set bail amount (called the bail schedule). If the defendant meets all the criteria, they can usually be released over the weekend. If, however, they need to see a judge to set bail (either because the crime they have allegedly committed is unusual or violent, or because they have a criminal history), then they will have to wait until the judge can see them to set bail.
