Bail and Bail Bondsman

A bond is a monetary guarantee that a defendant will show up in court when ordered by a judge. The defendant signs his bond which is a written promise that if he does not show up as required he will forfeit the bail amount to the court along with any fees. For all practical purposes there is no difference between a bond and bail. A cosigner or bondsman may also sign and post bond on the defendant’s behalf, giving the court additional assurances that the defendant will make his court appearances.

Kansas accepts the following types on bond.

Cash Bond. The defendant gives the money to the court to get his release. The money is returned at the end of the trial if the defendant completes their court responsibilities.

Personal Recognizance. This is also referred to as own recognizance or a signature bond. This allows the defendant to get out of jail without posting cash or assets as securities

Surety Bond. This involves participation of a professional surety, a bondsman. The bondsman promises the court the defendant will appear or the bondsman will pay the court the amount of the bond.

Cash Deposit. Ten percent of the bond amount is given to the court up front. Most of the money is returned at the end of the case if the defendant takes care of all his court responsibilities.

Property Bond. The deed to a home or real estate is signed over to the court to guarantee the defendant’s participation in their court orders. This is fairly uncommon.
