Mayes County, Oklahoma Jail Release
The justice system in Oklahoma takes “innocent until proven guilty seriously.” When a person is arrested, they are usually able to obtain release from jail while awaiting their trial. Understanding the process to obtain release is important, especially when you have a loved one who you are trying to get released as quickly as possible.
In Mayes County, when a person is arrested, they are brought to jail and are “processed.” This means they are finger printed, have a mug shot taken and are generally added to the criminal justice system. Once that is done, a bail amount is usually assigned.
Bail is the way that the state ensures that a person will appear at trial. The defendant must put forward a certain amount of money that will be forfeited if they fail to appear. A person can pay out of pocket or a bail bondsmen can pay the bail amount in exchange for a fee.
