How Do Bail & Bonds Work?
The bail bond system gives people the opportunity to get out of jail and
maintain their freedom until their trial date. Although each state has
its own unique bail bond options, the essential principles are usually
the same in every bail bond system.
Below, we explain how bail bonds work.
- Bail is money that is deposited to a court to release a defendant from
jail. Bail is based on the understanding that the defendant will be present
for their court date. “Bail bond” refers to the promise made
by the defendant, or someone who promises to pay on their behalf, to forfeit
the bail money if they do not return to court. The person paying bail
on behalf of the defendant is known as a “surety.”
- Bail amounts have to be set at a high enough amount that will deter the
defendant from forfeiting their bond and disappearing. Most courts have
preset bail amounts for specific offenses. However, a judge can choose
a different bail amount as they see fit. Judges can also deny the defendant
bail if they feel the person is a potential flight risk. When a defendant
has family, employment, and minimal criminal history, they are less likely
to be deemed a flight risk.
- Courts will issue an arrest warrant if a defendant does not make their
court date. The courts will also schedule a forfeiture hearing where the
defendant will have a chance to provide a reason for missing their court
date. However, courts will keep the bond amount if the defendant does
not have a valid excuse, or fails to appear at the hearing.
