What Happens if You’re Arrested While You’re Out on Bail
One of the first things you’re told when the issue of bail comes up is that you can’t be involved in any
criminal activity while you’re out on bail. You’re expected to be on your best behavior.
The problem is that sometimes things don’t go the way you expect and you find yourself under arrest
while you’re out on bail.
Don’t assume that just because you already have a bail bond that you can use that to get out of jail this
time around. Not only are the two arrests separate issues, if your second arrest, the one that happened
while you were out on bond, was for serious offenses, it’s possible the original bail bond will be revoked.
What your second arrest does is trigger a whole new bail process. If a judge looks at your case and
decides that they are willing to give you a second chance and says that you can post bail for the most
recent arrest, you’ll have to go through the same process of deciding if a loved one can post bail or if you
should contact Riverside Bail Bonds in Murrieta about another bail bond.
You should be aware, the odds are good that the amount bail money needed for the second arrest is going
to be substantially more than what was required the first time around.
Depending on the circumstances surrounding your case, the judge could decide that not only are they not
going to allow you to post bail a second time, they may even revoke the bail from the first arrest, meaning
that even if you’re able to get the charges dropped or take a plea deal for the second arrest, you will still
have to remain in jail until the case surrounding your original arrest is finalized.
The best policy when you’ve been released on bail is to stay out of trouble until the case is resolved.
Staying home and watching television rather than going out with your friends may seem boring, but it
beats potentially doing something stupid and getting arrested while you’re already out on bail.
