A bail bond (or surety) is a financial agreement that will allow the temporary release of a suspect pending trial. Posting bail can sometimes be very expensive. When a suspect doesn't have the money to pay the full amount of the bail, a bail bondsman will pay the bail on behalf of the suspect for a fee of around 10%
2What If I Miss My Trial?
If you have been released from jail on bail posted by a bail bondsman, you MUST show up for your trial. If you miss your trial for any reason, you will need to contact your bondsman IMMEDIATELY. If you fail to appear to court, and you do not contact your bondsman to make appropriate arrangements right away, the bondman will most likely hire a bounty hunter to find you.
