Bail and Bondsman

The money or property that is required by the court in exchange for granting temporary release to a defendant from custody is called bail. This is done to help guarantee the defendant’s reappearance in court once the trial begins. If he or she fails to show up, the bail is forfeited and he/she is considered a fugitive.

A bondsman can post bail for defendants that have money problems and unable to afford the bail on their own. In exchange for assuming responsibility for paying the bond should the defendant skip bail, the bondsman will charge 10% of the bail amount as his fee. This cannot be refunded.
