Bail and Bondsman

The release of an inmate while awaiting trial is allowed if he or she is able to post bail. Bail is the money required by the court as a form of insurance to ensure that the defendant will appear before the court once the trial begins. The defendant forfeits the money if he doesn’t show up as promised.

If the defendant cannot post bail due to financial difficulties, he can hire a bondsman to help him post bail. A bondsman usually charges 10% of the bail amount as his fee. Unlike the bail you post with the court, the bondsman’s fee is non-refundable.
