The bail bond is a show-up guarantee. Many offenders in custody don’t always own the full bail amount, as the sum can be significant. If you don’t have the full sum with you, you can reach out to a Platte County bonding agency and request a bail loan. The bonding agent will lend you the money, post the bail on your behalf, charge a fee and hold you accountable for showing up at court and returning the bond.
