Bail and Bondsman

Bail is the deposit of money set by the court before they grant the release of a defendant from custody while he awaits his trial. This deposit is held in the court’s keeping for the duration of the trial to help ensure the defendant’s return to court. If the defendant does not appear before the court as promised, the money is forfeited.

If a defendant cannot afford to post bail because he lacks money, he can hire a bondsman to do it on his behalf. A bondsman typically charges 12% of the bail as his non-refundable fee. His services include signing the bond and assuring the court that he will be liable for full payment of the bond if the defendant does not show up at his trial.
