Customer Question

On 01/21/2016, my daughter 18yrs. old still in high school got into a fight while walking home from school. before she could leave the campus two girls approach her carrying two baseball bats. My daughter told the girl to leave her alone. the girls holding the bat kept harassing her. so my daughter to protect herself grab one of the bats from one girl and hit her with it. The two girls than start betting my daughter with the bats. long story short the school police sent had my daughter handcuffed and sent to jail. The judge charge her with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, her bond is $50,000 of which I would need $5000 to bail her out. My daughter has never been in trouble before this incident. I am a single mother living on very limited funds (pay check to pay check) I called the bail bonds and they said my daughter case does not qualify for a PR bond. I do not know what else to do.
