Indiana, US. Jan-8-2020: The United States is known for its alarmingly high incarceration rate. As of 2018, it is estimated that 2.2 million US prisoners are behind bars. In other words, for every 100,000 Americans, about 655 are locked up.
This also insinuates that a large portion of the prison population can’t afford to post bail, or in other words, ‘buy their way out.’
DeLaughter Bail Bonds has been instrumental in making the lives of defendants in Indiana easier.
A spokesperson for the company stated, “The true cost of being arrested is far greater than just the bail amount. It’s emotionally and mentally taxing—for both the defendant and their families.
No child likes seeing their father locked up. What makes it worse is that most defendants spend a significant amount of time in jail, simply because their family can’t afford their bail or legal fees. At DeLaughter Bail Bonds, we resolve this problem by offering affordable bail bond services.”
Mass incarceration is one of the most important and overlooked problems in the US justice system. The average bail amount for felonies is estimated to be near $10,000. This amounts to more than 8 months of an ordinary US household’s monthly income.
Over-criminalization has not only led to high incarceration costs, but has also made things harder for families. Families of defendants are not only required to pay for attorney fees and legal costs, but also the cost of sustenance during jail time. For a family with average means, this might not always be feasible.
DeLaughter Bail Bonds helps defendants get around this. Instead of the complete bail amount, defendants are only required to pay a commission, which is 10% of the bail amount in the case of Indiana. Other than that, the company’s bondsmen work 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. This is to make sure that defendants are reunited with their families without any delays.
The representative continued, “In order to reach as many defendants as we can, we offer our services throughout Indiana—in over 90 counties, to be exact. The details of our service areas are available on the website. By increasing the scope of our services, we hope to make the bail process as fast as we can.”
