How Bail Works
When an individual is arrested for a crime depending on the charge he is taken to the city or county detention facility for booking. Once the individual is booked in he will be interviewed by the jail clerk and given a bond or a court date to receive a bond. This may take several hours or days depending on the court and the charges. Once bond is set several options are available a Surety Bond, Cash Bond or Pretrial Release.
This process involves a contractual undertaking guaranteed by the Bails Bonding Company to satisfy the face value of the bond. The Bails Bonding Company guarantees to the court that they will pay the bond forfeiture if a defendant fails to appear for their scheduled court appearances. The Bails Bonding Company guarantee is made with an agreement with the City, State or Federal authorities. There is no refund once the bond is paid and services have been rendered with the jail facility. If you have paid a collateral security deposit you will receive a refund once the case is completely over and the defendant or cosigner provides a certified copy from the courts that the case is completely over. If for any reason your case is forfeited you will not receive a refund from the collateral security deposit.
Cash bail means a person must give the court or jail the total amount of the bail in cash. The cash will be held by the court until the defendant appears at all of his/her court cases and the case is concluded. Full cash bonds provide a powerful incentive for the defendant to appear in court. If the defendant appears for all of his/her scheduled court appearances, the cash bail should be returned in full.
Pretrial Release/Signature Bond
Another method of release pending trial is through a pre-trial release program administered by the county or a law enforcement agency. Usually, the employees of these programs interview defendants in custody and make recommendations to the court regarding the release of individuals on their personal recognizance (i.e., without any financial security to ensure the defendant's return).
Please understand that each Bonding Company as in any business have their own rules and regulations. So make sure you understand that companies rules and regulations.
