What We Offer As a Bail Bond Agent in Columbus, Ohio

While HB Bail Bonds offers all kinds of bail bonds in Ohio, there are several different types with different conditions. It can help to understand which type of bail bond applies to you so you know what to expect.

Felony Bail Bonds

A common question we get at HB Bail Bonds is, can you bond out on a felony charge at all? Felonies are obvious serious crimes that cover a number of charges from fraud to gun charges and murder.

Felonies carry different levels of severity from 1 (most severe) to 5 (least severe), and the type of bond required may change depending on the severity of the charge, a person’s criminal history, and the judge’s decision.

But the answer, typically, is yes, you can be released on a felony bond in many cases. Surety felony bonds are fairly common, and the experienced bail bondsmen at HB Bail Bonds are ready to help you through the process, both in understanding the situation, and moving forward with it.

Misdemeanor Bail Bonds

Being arrested for a misdemeanor is less severe than being arrested for a felony, but they can still carry significant penalties, and misdemeanor bail bonds can be complicated. These can cover charges like public intoxication, simple assault, theft, and a number of non-violent crimes.

There are many different types of misdemeanors with different levels of severity, all of which likely will affect what you need in your misdemeanor bail bond. You can depend on HB Bail Bonds’ knowledge and expertise to help you deal with the situation quickly.

Domestic Violence Bonds

Domestic violence charges start off as misdemeanors, but are frequently moved up to felony level cases depending on the severity of the injuries and the defendant’s criminal history.

Domestic violence bonds tend to be set higher by a judge because violence has already taken place and public safety is a concern, but HB Bail Bonds can still help you navigate the specifics of your unique situation.

The most basic definition of an appearance bond is 10% bonds that friends or family members pay to the court that is holding your loved one. When an appearance bond is posted to the court the person who posted can receive up tp 90% of the money they posted back.

The defendant has two options for these bonds. First is to pay the entire amount of the bail set by the Judge to the court. (EX: $ 10,000 bond = $10,000 to the court). The second option is that a state licensed bail bond agency can post the bond on the defendant’s behalf for 10% of the set bond amount.

Disclaimer: All bonds in Ohio, except Recognizance Bonds, can be posted by a surety company. However, this depends on the defendant’s family’s financial situation.
