Bail and Bondsman

Bail is the amount of money a defendant needs to pay to the court if he wants to stay out of jail while his trial is still pending. The court keep the money during the trial to help ensure that the defendant shows up at all of his scheduled court appearances. Failure to appear will result in the bail being revoked and forfeited.

A defendant who cannot afford bail can use the services of a bail bondsman. A bondsman can sign a bond with the court to facilitate the release of a defendant. For this kind of service, he typically charges 10% of the bail amount. This fee is non-refundable.
