Bail enables a pretrial inmate to stay out of jail while his trial is still pending. To post bail, you must “deposit” money to the court. This will be held in the court’s keeping for the entire duration of the trial to help guarantee the inmate’s compliance with all of his court obligations. Any violation of the conditions of his release means that the bail will be forfeited.

A bondsman is an agent who is in the business of helping defendants secure their release when they cannot afford to post bail on their own. A bondsman’s fee is 12% of the bail amount and cannot be refunded no matter what the outcome of the trial is.
