After you’ve been detained, you may be required to make bail to leave prison while you await your trial date. Bail is set by the judge and can range from just a couple hundred dollars to thousands of dollars, depending on the case. Many people don’t have the necessary out-of-pocket funds to pay for their own bail, so they seek the assistance of a bail bondsman. A bail bond company provides the bail amount plus a percentage fee. Once the bail has been paid, the defendant is released until their trial. This allows the defendant to work more closely with their attorney and spend time with their families. Once the defendant appears for their court date, the bail is returned, in full, back to the bail bond company.
Bail bonds are an essential part of the American legal system. They allow defendants to enjoy relative freedom from the time between their detainment and their court appearance by providing the necessary funds to post bail. When defendants aren’t able to pay the bail amount, they are detained in prison until their court date with limited access to see their family and attorney.
There are two different types of bonds. The most common is a surety or bail bond. The other is called a property bond. With a surety bond, we are responsible for paying the bail amount set by the judge. However, if the defendant fails to make their court case, we have the authority to apprehend the defendant and turn them over to the police. When the defendant chooses a property bond, a lien is placed on the property equal to the bail value. The home may be put into foreclosure if the defendant fails to show up to their court case.
A bail bond can be obtained in a variety of ways. Most commonly, the bail is posted by a bail bond company such as Liberty Bail Bonds Nassau. In some cases, the bond may be posted by the defendant directly or their family. Defendants may also use their property as collateral for the bail. Under very specific circumstances, the judge may allow the defendant to go without needing to post bail.
One of the biggest considerations for bail bonds is if the defendant is considered a flight risk. In most scenarios, the defendant must stay within the state while they await their hearing. If the defendant needs to leave the state or country, they must obtain written consent from the judge and the bail bondsman. Failure to do so could result in the bail bond being voided and the defendant being apprehended and charged with additional crimes.
In many cases, no. The premium is paid to the bail bond company as a service fee and isn’t returned to the defendant once the case ends. When the defendant works with Liberty Bail Bonds Nassau, the terms of service are plainly laid out in the agreement.
