Winston Bail Bonding Reports on the Negative Impact of Pretrial Detention

Individuals who remain incarcerated before their trial often find their punishment is more severe, WinstonBailBonding.com announces

According to JusticePolicy.org, 60 percent of individuals in an American jail on any given day are individuals who have been charged with a crime, yet have not been convicted of any crime yet. With the help of bail bonds, a large majority of these individuals could return home. This allows them to care for their family and continue working and also prevents overcrowding in these facilities. Sadly, many individuals fail to obtain bond, either because they aren't familiar with the process or don't have the funds to secure their release.

"Any person arrested and charged with a crime may contact us for assistance with 24 hours bail bonds in Raleigh, NC. In fact, this process should begin before a person is granted bail. Doing so helps to ensure they spend the shortest time possible behind bars when they can be out serving as a productive member of society," Warren Winston, spokesperson for Winston Bail Bonding, announces.

In 1992, most individuals released before trial were allowed to go free on recognizance. During the period from 1992 to 2006, however, this changed. Financial release, largely through the use of commercial bonds, increased by 32 percent. Within this same time period, release on recognizance decreased by 33 percent. Furthermore, average bail amounts increased by more than $30,000 for the period between 1992 and 2006. This combination of factors has led to more individuals being held when they don't need to be.

"We work with clients to find the solution that best fits their unique situation. This increase in bail favors certain groups, and we wish to level the playing field. The American justice system is supposed to be blind, but this isn't always the case. We work to secure everyone's freedom when the court grants bail," Winston continues.

Low-income individuals often struggle to come up with the money to pay their cash bond. Many find they cannot come up with the fifteen percent needed to pay the bondman to obtain their release. This negatively impacts them, as research has shown pretrial detention tends to lead to a higher rate of felony convictions, jail time and longer sentences.
