Bail and Bondsman

A person arrested for a crime may be released from jail while his trial is still pending provided that he was able to post bail. This is the money he needs to place in the court’s keeping as part of his guarantee that he will return to court once the trial starts. If he misses one court date, the money is forfeited.

Defendants who are not financially capable of posting bail on their own can use a bondsman’s services to secure his release from prison. A bondsman, when hired, can act as a surety and will be held liable for paying the entire bail amount if the defendant does not show up as promise. The cost of a bondsman’s services is usually 10% of the bail amount.
