    Bail and Bondsman

    The money pledged to the court by a defendant in order to remain free while waiting for his trial to start is known as bail. This is required by the court to help ensure that the defendant will fulfill all his court obligations once the trial starts. Failure to do so means forfeiting the money.

    Defendants who cannot come up with enough money to post bail can acquire the services of a bondsman. A payment of 12% of the bail amount is required. This fee is non-refundable. Once hired, the bondsman will sign a bond to secure the defendant’s release. He also guarantees payment to the court if the defendant skips bail.
