Bail and Bondsman

Bail is the money or property paid to the court in exchange for the temporary release of an inmate awaiting trial. If the inmate violates the conditions of his release, bail is revoked and forfeited. If the inmate cannot afford to pay the bond set by the court, he is allowed to use the services of a bondsman. Once hired, a bondsman will act as a surety – guaranteeing payment of the entire bond if the defendant fails to appear in court once the trial begins. The fee of a bondsman is usually 10% of the bail amount and cannot be refunded.
