The holiday season is supposed to be a joyous time. It’s a time of peace on earth, goodwill to all creatures, and showing the ones you love how you feel about them. It is also a time filled with sorrow and depression for many. And sometimes, that sorrow is caused by someone you love being arrested.
For instance, let’s say your husband was driving home from the office party on the day before Christmas Eve and had one too many drinks. He swerved in the road, and soon enough the police were pulling him over. He’s arrested for DUI and is going to jail. Right now, you’re probably angry and worried about him. What can you do to help?
Since Christmas is on a weekend this year, there is a chance your husband won’t be arraigned until the following week. This means no holiday celebrations for your loved one. It’s a sad situation and it happens often. And unfortunately, until your loved one sees the judge, bail will not be assigned. Normally, it can take three business days to see the judge and with Monday be the observed day for Christmas, there is a chance you won’t be able to bail your husband out until late next week. That means no holiday and possibly missing work, which can cause your husband to lose his job. Not a very happy holiday after all.
At Andrew Pizzo Bail Bonds, we understand that no one means to break the law, especially during Christmas time. It can be a terrible and stressful situation for all involved. However, while your husband is in jail, we can help. Make sure you get as much information you can on his arrest and contact us as soon as possible. Although we can’t post a bond until bail is assigned, we can get the ball rolling and make sure your husband gets out of jail as quickly as possible.
Have a very happy and safe holiday, everyone!
