What is a Bail?

Most people do not know what a bail bond is or how the bail process works until they are dealing with it directly. After a defendant has been arrested, the court date is often set for some time in the future. So that the defendant does not have to wait for this date in jail, a bail is set to ensure that the accused does not skip town before judgement.

The amount a bail is set at is often more than the defendant or their loved ones can afford to pay. A bail agent (sometimes called a bail bondsman) pledges the bail amount in money or property to the court. In exchange, the bondsman charges a non-refundable percentage of the total bail bond. If the defendant does not show for court, the agent then becomes responsible for the full bond amount.
