If a loved one has been arrested for a crime, he or she may be eligible to post bail for temporary release from jail. In Minnesota, bail is available for suspects in all but the most serious criminal situations. Without posting bail, your loved one will remain in jail throughout the initial court appearances and eventual trial, which can be a matter of months or even a year or longer. If you need to get a loved one out of jail quickly, contact a licensed bail bondsmen at Twin City Bail Bonds LLC, Minnesota’s premier bail bond company.

Ways of Posting Bail

There are two options for posting bail in Minnesota (Note: anyone can post bail for a defendant)

  • Cash Bail: After bail is set, the defendant or anyone on behalf of the defendant can pay the entire amount in cash with a cash bond. Although the cash is usually returned at the conclusion of the criminal case, there are a number of state laws that give courts the right to retain cash paid for bail if the defendant is found guilty.
  • Surety Bond: The most popular way of posting bail is to obtain a surety bond, also known as a bail bond. Bail bondsmen in Minnesota partner with insurance companies that agree to pay the full amount of any bond if a defendant fails to appear.

Booking and Bond Hearing

When someone is arrested, he or she is first taken to a police station to be booked, or processed. During processing, a police officer records information about the suspect and the alleged crime. For less serious crimes, a suspect may be allowed to post bail immediately after being processed. Otherwise, the suspect will have a bail hearing where a judge will determine whether or not the accused is eligible to post bail and how much the bail is set at. The bail amount is up to the discretion of the judge and includes many different factors, including the severity of the crime, the suspect’s criminal history, and the suspect’s perceived flight risk.

After bail is set, an individual can be released from jail as soon as the bail is posted. Posting bail in Minnesota is quick and easy when you work with Twin City Bail Bonds LLC. Essentially, posting bail for your loved one works as follows:
