Bail and Bondsman
In Illinois, bail is the amount of money or property pledged to the court in exchange for the temporary freedom of a pretrial inmate. Bail will be held by the court to ensure the defendant’s appearance once the trial starts. Failure to appear in court means the defendant forfeits the bail.

Most jails have standard bail schedules that stipulate bail amounts for common crimes to enable pretrial inmates to get out of jail immediately rather than having to wait for a day or longer to see a judge.The accused person can often get out of jail within the day or soon after by paying the amount stated in the courthouse bail schedule.

There are three types of bonds: Surety Bond, Cash Bail, and Release on Own Recognizance (O.R.). If a defendant cannot post bail due to financial reasons, he can hire a bond agent to post bail on his behalf. A bond agent typically charges 10% of the bail as his fee which is non-refundable.
