Cost of not Making Bail
If you are arrested in Harris County, it is best to make bond as soon as possible. Some defendants decide it is cheaper to stay in jail. However, the statistics show a startling fact, those who do not make bail are more likely to be convicted, make worse plea bargains, and serve longer sentences in comparison to those who bond out, and start preparing a defense. Like many things in life, the up front costs are better paid than ignoring them because you will almost certainly pay more in the long run.
