Bail and Bondsman

A defendant is able to remain free from custody or jail after being charged with a crime through the bail process. To ensure the defendant’s compliance with the court’s requirements before and during the trial after his release, the court will set an amount of money to be lodged with them. This money is forfeited if the defendant does not fulfill his court obligations as expected.

If a defendant cannot put up enough money to pay the entire bail, he can use the services of a bondsman. To hire one, you will have to pay him a non-refundable fee equal to 12% of the bond. Once hired, he will sign a bond securing the defendant’s release. He is also held liable for paying the entire bond amount if the defendant misses a court appearance.
