Should You Bail Someone Out of Cobb County Jail?

If you've ever gotten a phone call from someone who was incarcerated in Cobb County and wanted you to look into bail bonds companies, then you probably didn't even blink an eye to get them released. However, there are several factors to think about before deciding if you should get someone out of jail or not.


When You Should Bail Someone Out of Jail

  • You have a personal relationship with them.
  • They have the money to pay you back for the bond + jail fees.
  • They are a responsible person.
  • They have little or no criminal history.
  • You can afford it.
  • They would otherwise have to wait several days before they could see a judge.

When You Shouldn't Bail Someone Out of Jail

  • You don't know the person that well.
  • They constantly have money problems and probably won't be able to pay you back.
  • You can't easily afford to front the cash to the bail bondsman.
  • The person has previous convictions.
  • The current criminal charges are very serious.

Knowing whether to bail someone out or not is entirely dependent on your own circumstances and you can do what you like. However, you should know that most people who get arrested are, in fact, guilty of the crime. The police and sheriff's department tend to get it right more than they get it wrong. If you're thinking that the person in jail could never do anything like they are being charged for, here's a friendly wake-up call. We're all human. We make mistakes. The degree to which we recieve help from others depends on our relationship with them and our forthcoming with the truth regarding the incident. If it were me being incarcerated, even if only momentarily, I wouldn't expect anything more than what I just stated.

Bail Bonds and Flight Risks in Cobb County, GA

A very important aspect of the bail bonding process in Cobb is the co-signing of the actual bond. By signing for the defendant in jail, you are guaranteeing that they show up in front of the judge for their court date. Bail is a form of pretrial release so that the inmate can gather evidence on their own behalf and obtain proper legal counsel. In some cases, the outcome looks too grim to bare and the defendant decides to flee the state. With the oversight of a judge, bail amounts and conditions take this into account, but there's always a chance - however slight- that the person will run from the law. With Cobb County bail bonds, the repurcussions are extreme.

If the defendant no-shows for court, a warrant is immediately put out for their arrest. At this time, they are considered a fugitive. Until they are brought back into custody and escorted to their new court date, the co-signer and the bail bondsman become liable for the entire amount of bail. By co-signing on the bond, the bonding company will hold you liable for the full amount. The bail that the co-signer must pay is non-refundable. Several Cobb County bail bonds agents enlist the services of bounty hunters or bail recovery agents to aid in getting the fugitive back into custody. This will alleviate the financial burden on both parties.


Should you bail someone out of jail? When in doubt, don't bail out. This goes not only for the Cobb County Adult Detention facility, but any jail in the state Georgia.
