Bail and Bondsman
If you are arrested for a criminal offense in Union Parish, you can still remain free from jail by posting bail. Bail is the money given to the court to be held in its keeping as a form of insurance that you will return to court once the trial begins. Bail is revoked and forfeited if you violate the conditions of your release.
A defendant can hire a bondsman if he/she cannot afford to post bail using his own funds. The bondsman will sign a bond to secure the defendant’s release and be held liable to pay the entire bail if the defendant skips bail. The fee is usually 12% of the bail amount and is non-refundable.
