Fighting for South Carolina Injury Victims for Over 50 Years

How do I get out of jail after an arrest?

If bail has been set, the only way to get the person out of jail is to pay the bond. A bail bond is similar to insurance; it means that the suspect agrees to appear at all subsequent legal proceedings. Failure to appear at legal proceedings can result in forfeiture of the bond, the issuance of a bench warrant, and possibly the loss of subsequent bail privileges. If the judge believes there is a risk the defendant will flee, or if she/he has been charged with a serious crime like murder, bail may be denied.
