New Arrest Info
First, if you are aware of an arrest, you will likely want to know how to get that person out of jail. To start with, you will want to find out how much their bail is going to be. You can get that information from the Guilford County Sheriff’s Department by calling 336-641-2700. That’s the direct line to the jail desk.
What Is Bail?
Bail is an amount set by the court that is meant to make certain that, if released, you will show up at the court date. You may only be temporarily out of pocket if you pay the full bail in cash. Once you make sure to follow through with all appearances required by the judge, the bail amount will be refunded by the court. However, if you are a no-show or get arrested again, there will be no refund. Most who find themselves in the Greensboro detention center are unable to come up with that kind of cash. In that case, you will need a bail bond.
What Is A Bail Bond?
If bail is something reasonable, meaning the amount is not purposefully astronomical, it can be paid to the court so the detainee can be released. In order to get released from jail, you will need to post ten percent of the bail. For example, if bail is $10,000, you would pay $1,000 to get a bail bond. If this is not something you are able to afford, your next step will be to get in touch with a Greensboro bail bondsman.
