If you or a loved one have been accused of committing a fraud crime in Las Vegas or anywhere in Nevada, we at Godfathers Bail Bonds stand ready to post your bail and get you out of jail as quickly as possible, so you can focus on hiring a good defense attorney and building a strong case.
The state of Nevada has some of the strictest bail laws and laws governing bail bonds agencies in the nation, but at Godfathers Bail Bonds, we are 100% "on top of our game" in handling every type of bail bond in a fast and effective manner.
Fraud Crimes Bail Bonds
"Fraud" is a very broad category in the Nevada penal code, covering such diverse charges as auto insurance fraud, check fraud, credit card fraud, healthcare fraud, identity theft, real estate fraud, unemployment insurance fraud, and more.
The bail amount set for those arrested on charges of fraud will vary based on a number of factors, including: type of fraud, amount of money defrauded, past criminal record, and whether or not a multi-person "conspiracy" to commit fraud existed.
However, many fraud charges fall under the Category D or E Felony statuses, which have a standard bail amount set at $5,000. Conspiracy to commit fraud, however, is a Class B Felony, which has a standard bail of $20,000.
Nevada law dictates that, in most cases, bail bonds agencies must charge a premium of 15% of the total bail amount, neither more nor less. Thus, while the premium will likely be $750 or more for fraud crimes bail bonds, this is much more manageable than paying the full bail amount upfront in cash.
Processing Your Bail Bond
Unless you post bail to get out of jail before your arraignment, you can wait up to 72 hours (not including weekends) before your hearing. While bail amount can vary based on multiple factors, the standard bail is usually used unless you wait the 72 hours, and schedules can vary from court to court. (There are 11 courts in Clark County, 3 urban and 8 rural).
Once you contact a bail bonds agent, he/she can process all of the paperwork in a matter of only 20 to 30 minutes and be poised to post bail as soon as the arrestee has been fully booked. However, if arrested overnight, one has to wait till 8am to post bail, and it can take several hours to wait for "group by group" inmates releases to come up at the Clark County Detention Center (CCDC).
Posting times are Monday through Friday, 8am to 5pm, at the Regional Justice Center located at 200 Lewis Avenue or after hours at the CCDC bail window (or online).
Depending on the busyness level at the jail facility and the time at which you were arrested, it can take anywhere from one to 12 hours to get out of jail in Las Vegas. While this can be a long, unpleasant wait at times, it is much shorter than 72 hours, and the expert bail bonds agents at Godfathers Bail Bonds know how to minimize your time spent behind bars.
After the release, your bail bonds agent will carefully explain to you the terms of your bail. Most importantly, you must show up for all of your scheduled court hearings. You also must remain in the county and notify you bail bonds agent of any changes of address, contact information, or employment status.
