Bail and Bondsman

A defendant can stay out of jail while awaiting trial if he posts bail. Bail is the money used by the court to ensure that the defendant will show up in court once the trial starts. If he doesn’t, he forfeits the money.

If the defendant does not have enough money for bail, he can pay a portion of the bail amount to a bondsman instead. A bondsman’s fee is usually 12% of the bail amount and this cannot be refunded. A bondsman, once hired, can sign a bond with the court to secure the defendant’s release.
