The length of time it takes to bail someone out of jail depends on several factors, such as the jail’s procedures, the availability of jail staff, and the complexity of your case. Generally, it can take anywhere from a few hours to several days to bail someone out of jail. It is best to contact the jail where the person is being held for more information on the specific process and timeline.
Preset bail amounts for various cases are available in Kansas, particularly misdemeanors. You can get out once the booking process has been completed, cash has been posted, or a bondsman is already handling the process.
Arrests During The Day Can Take As Little As 2-4 Hours
Normally, arrests that happen during day time will take 2 to 4 hours after the bail process is completed. In a scenario where the crime committed is more serious, they usually wait until the next business day for the arraignment.
However, an arrest late at night or on the weekend can often require a wait until the next morning. If the bail amount is too high for the defendant to afford it, a bail hearing usually occurs within 24 hours of the arraignment.
