Bail and Bondsman

Bail is the money or property that is pledged to the court in exchange for the temporary release of a suspect who has been charged with a crime while the trial has yet to start. If the accused fails to show up in court on the day of his or her trial, the money or property is forfeited.

A defendant can use the services of a bondsman if he or she does not have enough money to post bail. The bondsman will charge a non-refundable fee, usually no more than 10% of the bail. In return, the bondsman will sign the bond and be held liable for paying the entire amount if the defendant does not return to court once the trial starts.
