My friend or relative was just arrested, what can I do?
Contact Robert Cooper Bail Bonds! Whenever someone is arrested they must have a bond set before they can be released. The defendant is booked into jail and taken to a holding cell.

Robert or Misty will contact whatever holding facility you or your loved one is in and find out the charges, if there are any holds for other counties, and the exact bond amount.
