Bail and Bondsman

Temporary release of an accused person from custody is granted by the court if he or she is able to post bail. Bail is the amount of money or form of property used by the court to guarantee that the defendant will not leave the jurisdiction of the court and ensure that he or she will appear during his scheduled court dates.

If you are unable to post bail in Knox County, you can secure the services of the bondsman. For a non-refundable fee, the bondsman will post the money you are unable to pay and will be held responsible by the court if you do not appear for your trial. At the same time, he or she is legally allowed to force you to return to the court’s jurisdiction if you violate the conditions of your temporary release.
