It is possible to be taken into custody by the state of Kansas in several ways - extradition, bench warrant, arrest warrant or immediate arrest. Should this happen to you law enforcement generally cannot hold you in custody forever without the opportunity to bail or bond out. You are innocent until proven guilty. These terms are used interchangeable, are similar in purpose, but have different meanings. Bail is the money you pay to get out of jail. Bond is the money someone else pays to get you out (usually a bondsman). Here are several bond and bail options:
Now that you know about Kansas bonds and bails you may be wondering if you need an attorney. You do! In fact, the amount of bond, the conditions of bond and terms of your release (especially in sex crimes and domestic violence cases) can only be argued if you know what those are. Additionally, if you wish to seek a reduction in bond you must either file a formal motion or make oral arguments directly to the court. The decision will be made by the judge based on case precedent not your opinion.
