Bail and Bondsman
Bail is the money lodged with the court in exchange for the release of a pretrial inmate from jail. This money is held in the court’s keeping to ensure that the inmate will return to court once the trial begins. Failure to appear means the bail will be revoked and forfeited.
A pretrial inmate can hire a bondsman to post bail on his behalf if he cannot afford to do it on his own. A bondsman will typically charge 12% of the bail amount as his fee. This cannot be refunded even if the defendant meets all his court obligations and/or has been found not guilty.
