Bail Bond Process
Setting your loved one free and understanding the Bail Bond process in Wake County is the first step.
The bail bond process begins with the arrest of a suspect or defendant. In North Carolina, individuals are subject to arrest for a number of different reasons. These can include:
The defendant is brought to the local jail following the arrest, where the accused is processed and then presented to a Judge ( or magistrate).
Defendants arrested will be photographed, fingerprinted, and given conditions of release from a judge.
At the local jail, every defendant is then processed (also known as “booked”) according to the jail procedures of that jurisdiction. In general, the defendant is fingerprinted and photographed for proper identification. Then the accused may need to surrender personal items over to the jail. He/she may also be searched for contraband.
