Northlake is a nicely-kept secret in Denton County. Located just northwest of Grapevine Lake, it’s a quiet place with less than 2,000 people and beautiful scenery. Nevertheless, it’s not completely trouble-free, and if you find yourself in the middle of it, you may need a bail bondsman to help take care of the problem.
Chances are you know how it works if you live here. But when you’re trying to help a loved one who’s been incarcerated from out-of-town or out-of-state, you may not know how everything works. In the following article, we’ll be shedding light on it.
Northlake Bail Bondsmen Are Few and Far Between
Given the small size of Northlake, many bail bondsmen don’t bother providing service there. Most of the action is in the metropolitan areas, so that’s where they turn. We look at it a little differently here at Doc’s. People everywhere need a helping hand, especially when they’ve been charged with a crime (either justly or unjustly).
It’s our duty to provide service everywhere, and we’ve taken the time to learn the system inside and out. If you are acting on someone else’s behalf, here’s what you do.
- Give us a call
- Share the holding facility (in this case, the Northlake City Jail, which is housed within the police department, or the county detention center)
- Provide booking information (number, name, charge, etc.)
- The amount of the bond (if you have it — if not, don’t worry)
While we don’t have a physical presence in Northlake, we do have offices close-by within Denton County, and we can respond quickly to the city jail or the county detention center as needed.
One Thing to Keep in Mind
It’s possible your loved one may start out at the Northlake Jail and be transferred to Denton County shortly thereafter. It depends on space available, nature of the crime, and how long they’ve been incarcerated. Northlake typically doesn’t hold prisoners longer than a few days. If they’re not released on their own recognizance, then they’ll be transferred to the county correctional facility. So act quickly if you want to get them out before that transfer happens.
Once you know where they’re going to be, we can figure out the bail amount and take it from there. You’ll pay around 10 percent of the bond as a premium.
We Want to Help
It’s not our place to judge why your loved one is in the Northlake Jail or Denton County Detention Center. We just believe everyone is innocent until proven guilty, and they deserve the freedom to work on their defense and get affairs in order until that guilt can be proven. So let us help.
