Bail and Bondsman

A defendant is allowed to stay out of jail while his trial is pending once he posts bail – a certain amount of money set by the court. The purpose of this money is to help ensure that the defendant returns to court and doesn’t violate the conditions of his temporary release. If he fails to appear in court as promised, he loses the money. If a defendant does not have enough money to post bail on his own, he can hire a bondsman to do it on his behalf. The bondsman typically charges a 12% fee based on the bail amount. This is not refundable.
