A defendant awaiting trial must post bail – money or property – if he wishes to be granted temporary release. Bail is required by the court to be used as collateral which will help guarantee that the defendant will return for his trial. If the defendant wishes to get the money back, he will have to comply with the court’s orders. If he violates the conditions of his release, he loses the money.

If the defendant does not have enough money for bail, he can get assistance from a bail bondsman. A bondsman charges 10% of the bail as his non-refundable fee in exchange for posting bail on behalf of a defendant.
