After an arrest, your main goal is to figure out how to earn your freedom back. Life goes on even after being arrested. This means that the longer you stay locked in, the more you put your life in jeopardy. Moreover, the court may demand an enormous amount of cash as security that you will appear for your trials, especially if you face serious criminal charges.
Fortunately, bail bonds can help offload part of the burden and free you in the meantime.
