Glynn County Jail Release and Bond Process

You get a call, and your heart skips a beat. It’s from Glynn County Jail. Your loved one has been detained. It’s a horrible, sinking feeling when you realize your friend or family member is in jail. And if you have never dealt with this kind of situation before, you may have a lot of questions, like how to get your loved one released as quickly as possible.

The first thing you should do after receiving that call is to make another one to your lawyer. Your lawyer should know exactly what to do and the steps to take to get your loved one released. The Turner Firm has gotten many clients released from jail and knows how to get it done quickly so you can get them back home where they need to be.

Your Questions, Answered

The first question you may be asking is, “When can I get my loved one released from Glynn County Jail?” Unfortunately, the answer to this question can vary drastically according to the charge against them and their criminal history. It could be a few hours, or it could be several days. However, The Turner Firm might be able to reduce the amount of time your loved one spends in jail.

Often times, you will need to pay a bond amount to get your loved one release from jail, so your next question might be “How much will bond be?” Once again, the answer depends on your loved one’s charge and criminal history, however, there are a few different options for how you can pay the bond amount. These include:

  • A cash bond – you pay in cash.
  • A surety bond – a third party, such as a bondsman, pays the bond for a fee.
  • A property bond – you use collateral instead of cash.
  • A signature bond – nothing due up front, but the defendant has to pay a fee if they don’t show up in court.

Once your loved one is released from jail, they could still have a long road ahead of them. So if you’re asking, “Why should I work with an attorney?” then the answer to that question is simple. An attorney can not only help the process go more quickly and easily, but they could also potentially reduce or dismiss your loved one’s charges. Without an attorney, your loved one could see increased jail time and could face more serious charges that otherwise might have been reduced.
