Misdemeanor Bail Bonds

A Misdemeanor Bail Gives You Time To Gather Evidence For Your Court Date.

In the case of non-violent crimes, classified as misdemeanors, judges will usually set a low bail amount if it is a first-time offense. However, the court and judge can also raise the bail, or waive it all together based on the circumstances of each individual case.

Defendants who receive a misdemeanor and post bail can either do so with a full amount cash bond or with the help of a bail bondsman.

Understanding Potential Misdemeanor Charges

In the state of Pennsylvania, a first-time offense, depending on the situation and severity of the case, is typically charged as a misdemeanor if the individual is not waived and released. The court and judge will decide based on record history.

Misdemeanor Classifications:

  • Class A: potential of a 12+ month jail sentence/up to a $5,000 fine
  • Class B: potential of 6-9 month jail sentence/up to a $1,000 fine
  • Class C: potential of 3-5 months jail sentence/up to a $1,000 fine

For cases that receive a higher charge and have the potential to be re-classified as a felony, posting bail may be difficult if the charge is not reduced to a misdemeanor by the judge and court. Having the charge dropped and being able to post a misdemeanor bail all depends on your criminal history and circumstance of your arrest.
