Bail and Bondsman

In Forrest County, a defendant is allowed to secure his release from custody while awaiting trial through the process of bail. Bail is when the court requires money or property to serve as part of a defendant’s guarantee to return to court when the trial begins. If he fails to appear, the bail is forfeited.

A defendant who is unable to come up with enough money to pay the bond can hire a bondsman to sign the bond on his behalf. This means that the bondsman will act as a surety – owning the debt to the court should the defendant miss a court appearance. A bondsman usually charges 10% of the bail amount for his services. This fee is non-refundable.
