    Bail and Bondsman

    Before an arrested person appears at court for trial, he or she will be temporarily put under custody to ensure appearance at the court hearing. The person may be released from custody until the court trial date in exchange of a bail. The bail amount is set by the judge and must be submitted as a guarantee for court appearance. If the accused person does not have the full bail amount, he or she can ask a bail bond agent to submit the amount on his or her behalf for an asset collateral and a service fee. The service fee is usually between 10 and 20 percent of the bail amount. Unless the offender appears in court, the bail bond agent is held responsible and will send a bounty hunter to bring the offender to court.
