What is Bail?
Bail is an amount of money that will allow someone has has been arrested and charged with a crime to leave jail while they await their trial. The amount of bail depends on a number of factors, including the severity of the crime, the accused’s criminal history, whether or not the defendant is likely to show up for their day in court, and whether or not the community will be safe if the defendant is released.
What is a Bail Bond?
Bail amounts vary and can be quite high. If the person who was arrested, or their family, cannot come up with the full bail amount on their own, they can work with a bail bondsman. A bondsman charges a certain percentage of the overall bail (usually 10 percent and collateral) and then puts up the rest of the bail amount.
The bond is an agreement between the bondsman and the person who was bailed out and the person who put up the premium. The agreement states that the accused is responsible for complying with all court orders and must show up for their day in court. If the defendant does not show up, the bondsman will forfeit the entire bail amount to the court. If this occurs, the bondsman will recoup that amount of money, along with any fees as spelled out in the bond agreement, from the person who applied for the bond.
What Do I Need to Obtain a Bail Bond?
The more of the following information that you can supply, the faster and easier it will be to set the wheels into motion.
- Name, date of birth, address, social security number of the person who was arrested
- The jail they are being held in
- The charges
- The amount of bail (if it has been set)
- The name and address of the arrested person’s employer
- Someone willing to cosign on the bond
What Happens After Someone is Bailed Out?
After we help bail someone out of jail, we spend some time with them and the person who cosigned on the bond explaining what their responsibilities are. First and foremost, a defendant cannot break the law again. If they are arrested before their first charges have been adjudicated, the court system will revoke the bond. In addition to losing that bail money, most judges will not let them bond out again.
Second, we will discuss the importance of abiding by the wishes, and respecting the restrictions, of the court. Depending on the case, the defendant might be restricted from contact with certain people or they may be barred from certain locations. The most important factor that the defendant needs to be ready for is arriving on time for court appearances, along with showing up for other court-mandated activities. If a judge feels that a defendant is failing to do what is required of them, they can revoke the bail and the defendant will be forced to return to jail until their trial.
Third, we will discuss how we can help. While we are not lawyers, we can offer help in other ways. If a defendant is confused about what is expected of them, we want them to call us and ask questions. We would rather help them or help them find the right answer, than see one of our clients end up back in jail.
