    Bail and Bondsman

    A person charged with a crime can remain free while awaiting trial through a process called bail. Bail is the money lodged with the court to be held in keeping to help ensure the defendant’s compliance with the court’s requests. Any violation of the conditions for the defendant’s release will result in the bail getting forfeited.

    A defendant who cannot afford to post bail can still get released from custody through the help of a bondsman. A bondsman can sign a bond with the court to secure the release of the defendant. If the defendant skips bail, the bondsman will be held liable for paying the entire amount of the bond. A bondsman typically charges 12% of the bail amount as his fee and this is non-refundable.
