Bail and Bondsman

A pretrial inmate can be released from custody as long as his bail is paid. Bail is the money set by the court as a form of insurance when a defendant is allowed to remain free. It will be held in the court’s keeping for the entire duration of the trial and returned to the defendant if he meets all of his court obligations. Failure to do so means the money is forfeited.

A defendant who cannot post bail due to financial constraints can still secure his release with the help of a bondsman. For 12% of the bail, the bondsman can sign a bond to process the release of the defendant. He is then held responsible by the court for paying the entire amount if the defendant skips bail.
