Bail and Bondsman

Bail is the money or property you pledge to the court in exchange for your temporary release from jail while you wait for your trial to begin. This is done to assure the court of your return for your trial. If you fail to appear, you will be labeled a fugitive and your bail will be forfeited. If you cannot afford to pay the bail, you can hire a bondsman to post it for you. The fee is usually non-refundable and equal to 10% of the bond amount.
