Bail allows you to get out of jail and remain free while waiting for your trial to start. In exchange for your freedom, the court requires you to lodge money or property as part of your guarantee to appear before the court when the trial commences. Violating the conditions of your bail will cause it to be revoked and forfeited. A bondsman can post bail for defendants who do not have enough money in exchange for a 10% fee that cannot be refunded. If your bond is $10,000, you will need to pay him $1,000 to post bail for you.
