    Bail and Bondsman

    After an offender’s arrest warrant is issued, the judge will set a bail amount in the court order to allow the defendant the opportunity to remain out of custody until the trial date. The bail is a court show-up guarantee and must be posted at the court to stay out of jail. If you or a close friend or a family member want to post bail, and don’t own the bail amount as set in the order, you can contact a Newton County bondsman to get a loan. Bail loans must be typically backed-up by a collateral and are charged with a service fee. You can get out of jail as soon as the bail is posted, but if you don’t show up on trial, the bail is lost and you will be arrested by a bounty hunter.
