Bail and Bondsman

Bail is the amount of money required by the court from defendants before they are granted temporary release from prison while they await trial. The money will be used to guarantee the defendant’s return to court once the trial begins. The money is forfeited when the defendant fails to appear in court as promised.

A bondsman’s services can be secured if the defendant cannot afford to post bail on his own. The bondsman can act as a surety for a non-refundable fee, usually 10% of the bail amount.
