Bail and Bondsman

Bail is the money or property that is paid to the court in exchange for the temporary release of a defendant from custody while he awaits trial. The court holds the bail in its keeping for the purpose of ensuring that the defendant will return to court when the trial begins. If the defendant fails to appear, the bail is forfeited.

A defendant who cannot pay the bond due to financial difficulties is allowed to seek the help of a bondsman. For a non-refundable fee amounting to 10% of the bail, the bondsman will act as a surety. The court will then hold him responsible for paying the entire bond should the defendant miss a court appearance.
