If you are ever charged with a crime in Sullivan County, you may be able to get temporarily released from custody while your trial is pending if the court allows you to post bail. Bail is the amount of money or value of property that will be held in the court’s keeping as a form of collateral to ensure your return to court. If you miss a court appearance, bail is forfeited and you are labeled a fugitive.

A bondsman is an individual who is in the business of posting bail for people who cannot afford it on their own. He or she usually charges 10% of the bail amount as his fee. In return, he will be held responsible by the court for paying the entire bail amount should you miss a court appearance.
