Bail and Bondsman

Bail is the money lodged with the court so that a defendant is granted temporary release from jail while awaiting trial. It will be used to help make sure that the defendant will return for his trial. A missed court appearance will mean forfeiting the bail.

If a defendant does not have enough money for bail, he can opt to pay 10% of the bail amount to a bondsman instead. A bondsman is a person in the business of signing bonds with the court in exchange for the temporary release of defendants. Unlike the actual bail paid to the court, the bondsman’s fee cannot be refunded no matter what the outcome of the trial is.
