Bail and Bondsman

A person charged with a crime is required to post bail in order to get out of jail while the trial is pending. Bail is the money set by the court which will be used to guarantee the defendant’s appearance at his trial once it starts. If the defendant misses a court date, the bail will be forfeited.

A defendant who cannot pay the bail due to financial problems can still get released if a bondsman posts bail on his behalf. A bondsman can sign a bond with the court to facilitate the release of a defendant for a fee. The cost is usually 10% of the bail amount and it cannot be refunded.
