Bail is when the court requires money or property in exchange for granting temporary release to a defendant. If the defendant violates the conditions of his release such as failure to appear before the court when called, the money or property is forfeited. If the defendant cannot post bail, a bondsman can be hired to do it on his behalf. The fee for his services is usually 10% of the bail amount and cannot be refunded no matter what the outcome of the trial is.
