Posting bail for a DUI
My daughter's boyfriend is in jail for a DUI (his 2nd). The bail has been posted for $6,800. My daughter wants us to post bail for him. What happens to the $6,800 if we give it? Will we get it back when he appears in court, or is there a possibility we could loose it.
Also, does it really make a difference how soon we post bail? If he gets out soon and is able to start working to pay off his fines, will it make a difference to the judge in his final decision and penalty?
