How do I bail someone out of jail in New Jersey?
New Jersey has just gone through an extensive bail reform act, and it’s been in effect for quite a while now. The courts are starting this process where they’re trying to avoid incarcerating people for a long period of time while they’re awaiting a trial. There are a lot less people that are having to post bail, unless the charge is very serious, the person has a significant criminal background, or there is a serious risk of them not coming back to court. Almost always, a family or friend can go to either the county sheriff’s department or the county jail and post the bail. If that’s not an option, there’s always an option to go through a bail bondsman. With the Bail Reform Act, there are fewer and fewer people being held, especially on the third-degree and fourth-degree crimes, than there ever were.
