Bail and Bondsman

A defendant is able to remain free while his trial is pending through the process of bail. The court requires a certain amount of money to be put down as a form of insurance. If the defendant fulfills all of his court obligations, he gets the money back after the trial has ended minus court fees and fines. If he doesn’t, the court retains the money.

A defendant who has trouble coming up with the money for posting bail can still get released with the help of a bondsman. A bondsman can sign a bond with the court that will allow the defendant to get released. For his service, the bondsman typically charges 12% of the bail amount as his fee. Unlike the money you pledge to the court, this fee cannot be refunded/returned.
