My question involves criminal law for the state of: Nebraska
A friend of mine bailed someone out of jail and then he got arrested while on bail. When she asked the county attorney, he said that she could get bail returned minus 10% if she surrenders the defendant. So the question is - would she technically have to bail the person out of the second jail to take them to the first jail to get the first bail back? It is not like he is out and about. His first court date for the new charge is in a few weeks. The pre trial for the original charge is in June and trial in August. How does that work in this case? Does the second county send him to court at the original county?
Is she pretty well screwed out of the bail? (She knew this was a risk but did not think he would screw her out of so much money and figured it was probably stupid. I told her that too). She is not going to bail him out a second time either. I believe lesson learned (hopefully).
