Green County, WI Jail Release

Finding out that a loved one is in jail can leave you stressed and confused, with what seems like a million unanswered questions. At Tracey Wood & Associates, we want to make sure that you are not overwhelmed. Working with an experienced attorney can give you and your loved one peace of mind, knowing that you are being offered the best defense possible for your case.

Getting Released from Green County Jail

One of the first questions on your mind is likely how soon your loved one can get out of jail. While this depends on the defendant’s charge and a number of other factors, your attorney will likely be able to help speed up the process.

Getting the defendant out of jail also depends on when he or she can make bail. Bail is an amount set by the court that must be paid before the accused can be released. This helps to ensure that the defendant will arrive at court for his or her hearing.

How to Make Bail in Wisconsin

Making bail often requires the use of a bond. Although Wisconsin does not allow a for-profit bail bond industry, you can still make bail through means other than a bondsman. This includes:

  • Signature bond – A bail is set, but the defendant does not have to pay money up front. He or she will have to sign a document agreeing to pay the amount if he does not return for his hearing.
  • 10 percent surety bond – An adult age 21 or older can pay 10 percent of the bail, which will most likely be returned in full once the defendant appears at the scheduled hearing.
  • Release on recognizance – Typically only available for first-time offenders accused of non-violent misdemeanors, a bail amount is not set, but documents must be signed agreeing to return for his or her court date.
  • Cash bond – The least popular, but quickest option is to pay the entire bail amount in cash up front.
