What is a Felony Crime?
A felony is a crime that carries weighty consequences. The charges may look different based on the case, but there is a minimum of 366 day imprisonment. Felonies are very serious and when someone is accused of such an offense, it can disrupt the lives of the accused and their loved ones.
Examples of felonies include:
- aggravated assault
- possession of drugs
- tax evasion
No matter the type of felony, the consequences are significant. When a person is arrested, their information is collected by the police— fingerprints, photographs, and background checks are all a part of the process. Once all have been accounted for, the accused person is eligible for bail application.
Felonies have a high-priced bail that can range anywhere between $4,000 to $50,000 and beyond. Depending on the severity of the crime, it is possible that the accused is not eligible for bail. It all depends on the judge’s discretion— he or she determines if bail is allowed and how much it will be. State regulations also have a say in minimum and maximum bail costs depending on the crime.

ELIGIBLE FOR BAIL: HOW TO PAY
The defendant or a loved one can pay the bail bong directly to the court of law. The defendant needs to appear in court on the date of the hearing. If they miss this hearing, the money will not be accepted.
If cash is not an option, the defendant can use property as collateral. The value of the property must be higher than the bail price. This route is lengthier and the defendant will be held until the process is complete.
