Bail and Bondsman

Bail is a form of collateral set by the court before it will allow the temporary release of an inmate awaiting trial. Depending on the type of bail, it can be paid using money or property. If the defendant is unable to come up with the funds for posting bail, he or she can use a bondsman to arrange the paperwork and secure the defendant’s release. In return, the bondsman will charge a non-refundable fee that is usually 10% of the bail amount. Should the defendant miss a court date, the bondsman will be held responsible for paying the entire bond.
