Everyone makes mistakes. And for the most part, life gives you second chances. However, you don’t want to test fate. If you have been arrested once and received a bail bond, act cautiously when out of jail. But what happens when you make another mistake when out on bail? If you or a loved when has gotten re-arrested, the bail process has become more complicated. A-EZ Out Bail Bonds will explain the results of this action, and we will guide you through the bail process.
Potential Consequences For Being Re-Arrested
Every case is different, but you lose the court’s leniency if you have gotten into trouble again when out on bail. Let’s take a look at some of the potential consequences you could face.
Lost Negotiations or Deals
Did you have an attorney on your case? If so, the deals and negotiations that were in progress can be forfeited. The prosecutor may decide to dismiss any plea bargains and you will need to start from scratch again and re-negotiate.
Crime Bail Crime
If you were originally charged with a felony crime and you commit another felony crime while out on bail, you are in a situation called “crime bail crime.” This can add another two years to your jail sentence if the prosecutor decides to charge you with this.
The judge may view you as a flight risk and therefore deny you any bail. The chance you had, you lost, and you will have to wait for trial while locked up in jail. It’s possible that the crime you got re-arrested for is more severe than the first crime. That’s another reason why your bail would be revoked. However, if you are fortunate, the court might decide to just increase your bail amount.
Bail Amount Increases
It is common for the court to increase your bail amount if you are re-arrested. They are much more hesitant to let you run free again. Therefore, they can set very high bail amounts that most people can’t afford on their own.
Need a New Bail Bond
The original bail bond you had can not get you out of jail a second time. You will need to get a second bail bond. A-EZ Out Bail Bonds can supply you with this additional bail bond, all you need to do is call.
Each arrest is treated separately, which is why you need an additional bond. However, the initial bail bond remains active. This means that you still need to show up to all the court dates and uphold the rules from this first bond, in addition to this new one. Therefore, expect your court appearances to double. Make sure you show up to all of these dates, or you risk forfeiting the bail bonds.
