3 Reasons You Shouldn't Skip Out On Bail
Now that you have been bailed out of jail, you might be panicking and thinking about your upcoming court date. It's certainly understandable that you are concerned, and you might even be feeling so concerned that you are thinking about skipping out on bail and hiding from the law. Even though this might seem like a good idea right now, it's only going to make things harder for you. These are a few reasons why you should never skip out on bail, no matter how scared you are about going to court.
1. You'll Only Face More Charges If you go on the run, there is a good chance that you will get caught. Then, along with making your current situation worse, you have to worry about facing new charges for failing to appear in court. This isn't going to make you look very good in front of the judge and can lead to other consequences, such as added jail time. On top of all of that, you'll have to worry about being caught by a bounty hunter and having to pay out a lot of money to a bondsman, if you used one to get out of jail.
2. The Person Who Posted Bond Could Be Held Accountable You have to think about the person who was willing to put their name and money on the line to bail you out of jail. The person who worked with a bondsman (such as one from All Night & Day Bailbonds) or who otherwise got you out of jail could be held accountable for you skipping out on your bond and not appearing in court and may have to pay out a lot of money.
3. It Can Affect Your Ability to Get Out on Bond in the Future If you ever find yourself in trouble again, you could face a higher bond -- or no bond at all -- if you have a background of skipping out on bond and not appearing for your court dates. Also, bail bondsmen might not want to work with you in the future because they might be afraid that you won't show up in court. Even if you are planning on staying out of trouble, you never know what could happen, and you don't want the mistakes that you make now to affect you in the future.
Even though it's scary to face court charges for a crime, it's important not to skip out on bail. These are three of the main issues that you could face if you do, so instead, focus on hiring a lawyer and working toward resolving your case instead.
