Morgan County Sheriff’s Alert:

Bail and Bondsman

A pretrial inmate can stay out of jail by paying the bail amount set by the court. Bail is the money or property that is used by the court to guarantee the defendant’s fulfillment of all of his court obligations. Any violation of the conditions for his release will mean forfeiting the bail and getting a warrant issued for his arrest.

If the inmate cannot post bail because it is set too high, he can use the services of a bondsman. A bondsman can act as a surety for 10% of the bail amount. Unlike bail though, this fee is non-refundable.
