Big Bucks and Bail Bonds – Lesson Learned

So, we’re all going to make mistakes, right? I’m sure I do. That night, I made many. The good news is that I learned a lot and was able to give a buddy much better advise, saving them the headache I had when it came time for him to get a bail bond. Allow me to recount the events of the day. Click here to find more about Afford-A-Bail Bail Bonds Hartford are here
It all started innocently enough when I ran into some old college buddies at a local pub to celebrate an old friend’s bachelor party. We had a small supper, a few beers, and a lot of laughter. I had a glass of water as it was getting close to closing time and felt confident that I would be able to make it back to my flat, which was just seven miles away. As you might expect, I got the worst view of my life not two miles from the parking lot. In the rearview mirror, all I could see were flashing red and blue lights. The first error began to show its ugly head.
I was blowing for a breathalyser test and taking a long and solemn ride to the police station in the blink of an eye. I was escorted to a holding cell to wait after a mug photo, fingerprinting, and being arrested for DWI. With so much free time on my hands, I began to consider what I would do. That’s when I remembered something that would prove to be a stumbling block in the process. Parking tickets that have not been paid. I only had three or four from downtown trips, and I had never gotten around to paying them. This was not going to be of any use.
That minor snafu irritated the judge, and he imposed my bond at a level that was higher than the money I had on hand. I guess I’d proven myself to be a liar, and he wasn’t going to let me get away with much. I dialled my roommate’s number to see if he could come up with the money to post bail and get me out of jail. There was no such luck. On the way in, I passed by several of those bail bond companies and grabbed a phone book to call one. I went with the person who had the biggest ad and he agreed to help me out for a cost of 5% of my bond amount. The third blunder. I needed to get out of jail, and I didn’t want a bounty hunter pursuing me if I didn’t pay him back, so I hired him and borrowed money to pay him all I owed him.
