As a rule, getting charged with a misdemeanor isn’t as bad as getting charged with a felony, but it’s still not fun. Unless you’re lucky enough to be released on your own recognizance, after you’ve been charged and formally arrested, you’ll need to post bail money. There are two ways of doing this. The first is to come up with the funds on your own and pay the entire bail. The other option is figuring out how to pay a 10% fee to a local bail bonds agency. Most people opt to use the bail bonds agency’s services.
One of the good things about getting charged with a misdemeanor instead of a felony is that the bail is usually a bit smaller than if you were facing felony charges. The only issue is that smaller doesn’t mean easily affordable. It’s not unusual for a person to need a $5,000 bail for a simple misdemeanor charge. Few of us have an extra $5,000 on hand. After all, it’s not like you planned on getting arrested.
