I’m innocent! The charges against me are false? What can I do? Great question. We’re not here to pass judgment. That’s up to the court system. What we can do it get you out of jail as quickly as possible. Here’s how this works: By law, in the first 24 hours after an arrest you must make a first court appearance in front of a judge. At this hearing, a judge will set a dollar amount you need to pay to get out of jail. This is called bail. The judge determines your bail amount based on the charges filed and your criminal history, if any.
