Colorado DUI Lawyer Explains Cost of Bail Bonds

Depending on the circumstances of your DUI, such as whether it is your first or a repeat DUI, the cost of posting bond will vary. In this video, Denver drunk driving defense attorney Will Smith explains the factors that determine the cost of bail bonds and what will happen if you cannot afford to post bond.

In the case of a DUI in which there’s a formal arrest and bond is set, there are two ways that that’s resolved. One, the individual posts the bond. Very typically, that’s between $1,000 and several thousand dollars. In the event of driving with a suspended license because of a prior DUI, the bond is statutorily set at $10,000. That’s an awful lot of money. At the end of the day, if the individual posts bond, by that deposits money for their promise to appear in a future court date, they are then released on bond. If that person cannot post bond, then they must stay in jail until their next court hearing. At that time, if I’m on board, we’re generally addressing bond at that time and at a bond hearing I can certainly be useful in requesting that the bond be lowered.
