04 Jan The Difference Between Bail and Probation/Parole
A surprising number of clients we deal with understand that a bail bond helps them get out of jail, which it does, but they also seem to think that the bail bond also means that they are on probation or parole. That’s not the case at all.
Probation and parole are connected to your sentence. They only come into play after you’ve been convicted of a crime. The bail bond that Montana Bail Bonds provides you isn’t connected to probation or parole. Its sole purpose is to provide you with the means to live life outside of jail while you are waiting for the court to handle your case.
If the judge decides to attach probation to your sentence, we will receive a check from the courthouse and your contact with us will have run its course. The only way we’ll connect with you again is if you still owe on the 10% fee we charge or if you’re arrested on different charges.
The only time a bail bond and probation will be even closely linked is if you are arrested for violating probation. In this case, you face an entirely separate charge from the one linked to the crime that led to you being placed on probation.
