Bail and Bondsman

The money or property lodged with the court for securing an inmate’s release while awaiting trial is called bail. This is done to assure the court that the defendant will appear at his trial once it starts. If he doesn’t, bail is forfeited and the defendant is labeled a fugitive.

If you cannot afford to post bail in Newton County, you are allowed to use the services of a bondsman. A bondsman will be able to sign your bond and secure your release as long as you pay him his fee – 10% of the bail amount. Part of his services is to act as a surety. This means that should you skip bail, it will be the bondsman who will be held responsible for paying the entire bond amount.
