Imagine this: It’s 4:00 in the morning and you get a call from the Alachua Florida County Jail. On the other end of the line is your best friend, he was arrested the previous night and needs you to bail him out. You have work in a couple of hours, and there are more days left till your next pay check than there is money. Do you post bail for your friend or not? While for some people the decision to bail a friend or family member out of jail might be an easy one, for others it’s not so easy to make that decision.
While we know that every situation is different for everyone, the fact remains that your friend is still sitting in jail and needs bail posted. Some might feel guilty that they can’t afford to post bail, while others might feel obligated because their friend helped them out in the past. Regardless of the situation it is perfectly acceptable to question whether you can afford to bail someone out of jail or not.
