Bail and Bondsman

The deposit of money you give to the court to secure the release of a defendant from jail is called bail. Bail serves as a form of insurance that the court holds over the defendant. The money will be returned to the defendant (minus court fees and fines) as long as he fulfills all of his court obligations. Failure to do so will result in the forfeiture of the money.

If the defendant cannot afford to post bail, he can still get released from jail if he gets the help of a bondsman. For 12% of the bond, the bondsman will agree to act as a surety. He will sign the bond to secure the release of the defendant. At the same time, he becomes responsible for paying the entire bail amount if the defendant misses a court date. Take note that the bondsman’s fee is non-refundable.
