On average, bail amounts equate to roughly $10,000. If you think this is expensive, you ought to check out some of the most expensive bail in U.S. history:
- Raj Rajaratnam, $100 million bail. He was involved in a $20 million insider-trading scheme.
- Bernie Madoff, $10 million bail. He was involved in the $50 billion Ponzi scheme.
- Kening Ma, $100 million bail. He sold all-terrain vehicles without a smog certificate.
- Michael Milken $250 million bail. He was involved in insider-trading and part of the largest Wall Street investigation ever.
Now this might be a bit of a relief if you have bail to pay, and your bail is nowhere near this amount of money. While still more affordable than these multi-million cases, some more average prices for bail may still be a struggle to meet. This is when you call us, Penny Bail Bonds in Santa Ana at
