Dallas County Jail Call

Got a call from the Dallas County Jail the other day. First part of the call went something like this:

Defendant: Hi. I need to get a bail bond.
Me: Ok, what’s your name:
Defendant: “——- ———–”
Me: Ok, there’s an insufficient bond and bond forfeiture for failure to appear.
Defendant: Yeah, I have the money. I paid for my other bond, no problem – so you don’t have to worry about getting your money. I just don’t like going to court. I don’t know why they had to arrest me again for the same thing.
Me: :-/ Yeahh, that not going to court thing is gonna be a problem for you!!!

At Southern Bail Bonds when we get these types of phone calls it just re-emphasizes the fact that even people who have gotten Dallas County Bail Bonds in the past still may not know exactly what is required of them in order to keep their Dallas Bail Bonds in effect.

Dallas County Bail Bonds Information

This call was a classic example of their previous bail bonds agent not taking the time to fully explain to them that the whole purpose of their bail bond was to ensure their appearance for all future court dates until the case was disposed of. After further conversations with this defendant it became very clear to me that she didn’t fully understand the process, and really had no idea how serious her situation was. We continued our conversation, I got her family contact info, talked extensively with them explaining the process to them as well – and we were able to successfully process her bond.

After she was released and came into the office to complete her paperwork, she expressed her gratitude and stated that if she had known exactly what the process was before, she would not have gotten re-arrested because she would have known how important going to court was. For whatever reason, she had been given the impression that the bond would somehow take care of her charges. Maybe that sounds odd, but we’ve heard this more times than you can imagine – and because of what I’ve seen in this business – I believe her!
