What are Some Common Misdemeanors that will Require Bail?
- Disorderly Conduct – This charge doesn’t have to include an act of violence. You can be charged with disorderly conduct for “disturbing the peace”. Causing a scene in public that affects others minding their own business could lead to 60 days in jail
- Trespassing or Loitering – Trespassing or loitering is a charge that can carry up to 60 days in jail. If you are arrested and are carrying a weapon the charges can be more severe. The charge can be levied even if you don’t destroy property or bother someone.
- Shoplifting or Petty Theft – Petty theft is charged if you are caught stealing property valued at less than $300. If it’s your first offense the charge can be 60 days. If it’s not your first arrest the charge could lead to up to a year in jail.
- Domestic Violence or Assault – You can be charged with this misdemeanor for attacking another individual. You don’t have to actually hit someone to be charged, it’s the attempt to do so that gets you arrested.
- Indecent Exposure – Choosing to relieve yourself in public may seem innocent, but it falls under the condition of exposing yourself in public. It could land you a year in jail and a $1,000 fine.
- In addition to these examples, other misdemeanors involve traffic violations, simple drug possession, or stalking another person.

What Are the Most Common Types of Bonds?
When it comes to bail bonds, there may be several options available for friends and family members, and the type of bond you may need will depend on a few factors. Things such as the offense for which the defendant is being charged, what the total amount for bail is and your current financial situation can all have an affect on the kind of bond you may need. The following types of bail bonds are the most common forms of posting bail.
By far the most common State bond, a surety bond, is governed by Florida regulations and stipulates that the bondsman will be paid 10%. The bondsman then provides the remainder of the bond to the court. This is the law. There is NEVER an instance where a bondsman can offer you a deal or charge more than the stipulated 10%.
The only exception to this 10% rule is when bail is set under $1,000. Regardless of the amount below $1,000 the cost is $100 and not 10%. Since the law is specific the only difference that separates the multitude of bail bonds companies is the service you will be provided.
Federal Bail Bonds
A Federal bail bond comes in to play when the alleged crime is of a federal nature or involves interstate criminal activity. Examples of this would be crimes that cross state lines, or any crime investigated by a federal agency like the FBI, or involves the Post Office, IRS or Immigration Services. Examples of this would be tax evasion, drug trafficking, fraud, and kidnapping as well as any crime that takes place on federal property.
Federal bonds are most often many times higher than a state bond. The premium rate in Florida for a Federal Bail Bond is 15%. Often, a judge will add a “Nebbia” requirement. This means that whomever is paying the bond provides proof that any collateral or money used is from a legitimate source. The professionals at Bazarte Bail Bonds are experienced in dealing with Federal Bail Bonds and can be instrumental in helping the arrestee deal with these intricacies. We can also provide assistance for Signature and Immigration bonds.
When a person believes there may be an outstanding warrant for their arrest, it is possible for the offender’s bail be paid without going through the process of being detained in jail. The reason for this is simple. Jails are overcrowded. If someone believes a warrant exists against them, the best course of action is to contact Bazarte Bail Bonds. We can verify the record, and explain the process, and accompany you to a facility that accepts self-arrests. We will explain what identification is required, and the proper dress code.
