Bail and Bondsman

If a person is charged with a criminal offense, he can be granted bail by the court. This means that as long as he guarantees his appearance at all his court dates, he may be allowed to stay out of jail while waiting for his trial to begin. Some types of bail will require more than a promise. It requires the defendant to put down money or property as a form of collateral that will be forfeited if he fails to appear as promised.

A defendant who cannot post bail because he lacks money can hire a bondsman to serve as his surety. For a non-refundable fee (10% of the bail amount), the bondsman will sign the bond stating that payment of the entire bail amount will be guaranteed by him if the defendant misses a court appearance.
