Bail and Bondsman

When someone is arrested and charged for a crime in Illinois, he must remain in custody until his trial is over unless bail has been posted. Baill is a form of property, usually in the form of cash or collateral, pledged to the court in exchange for the release of a suspect from jail. This is done with the understanding that the suspect will return for trial or forfeit the bail. If the suspect cannot afford the bail, he may pay a bail bondsman to post bail on his behalf. The bondsman will typically charge 10% of the bail amount as his fee. Unlike bail, this fee is non-refundable.
