Montgomery County Sheriff’s Alert:

Bail and Bondsman

The money or property that a defendant pledges to the court in exchange for his temporary release from jail is known as bail. This is used as a form of collateral to ensure that the defendant shows up in court once the trial starts. The money will be returned to the defendant (minus court fees and fines) after the trial. If he misses a court appearance, bail is revoked and forfeited.

A bondsman is a person who acts as a surety on behalf of a defendant in exchange for 10% of the bail amount. He signs a bond with the court in order to get the defendant released. However, unlike bail, this fee is non-refundable.
