What is Bail?
Once a crime has happened, whether it is felonies, custody disputes, or domestic violence, the suspect is under arrest, and they wait in jail until their court hearing. At the end of arraignment, the judge says, “[person’s name] has been released on $45,000 bail” or “bail denied,” depending on the severity of the crime committed.
Bail is a set amount chosen from a bail schedule and adjusted to fit the nature of the individual and crime. Bail provides insurance between the court and the defendant that the defendant will return to court or otherwise forfeiture the payment made. Present-day bail is set so high that most people cannot afford to post bail. Instead, loved ones seek help from a bail agent or bail bond service company like Liberty Bail Bonds. Agents will post the total bail for just a small fee. Bail bonds work.
What is a Bail Bond?
There are two types of bail bonds, criminal and civil. Bail bonds are surety bonds provided by a bail bondsman or bail bond service company. To quickly secure the release of an individual from jail, it is best to contact an agency and get a bail bond. Most bail bonds can be posted 24 hours, seven days a week.
A criminal bail bond is used in a criminal case and guarantees the charged individual appears for future court proceedings when called upon by the court. It also guarantees the individual to pay any fines or face any penalties that the court decides. A civil bail bond is used for civil cases and guarantees the payment of debt, interest, costs, and other assessed against the charged individual.
Who is a Bail Bond Agent?
A bail agent, otherwise known as a bail bondsman, is someone who provides the bail amount for a person charged with a crime or crimes who does not have the cash or credit needed to pay the full bail with the court. The bail agent provides the payment to the court. The individual charged with the crime is given contracts to sign by the bail agent stating the individual will appear in the courts. This agreement is what makes bail bonds work.
However, a bail agent does more than just post bail amounts. They remind the clients of their court appearances, any important upcoming dates, reminders for the defendants to stay honest. If a defendant fails to show in court, the bail bond agent will lose the amount paid towards the individual’s bail.
The probability that a defendant fails to show is rated at risk levels by the agency, from low risk to high risk. Each risk level receives its check-in protocol to avoid the agency losing the full bail amount to the courts.
How Does Bail Work?
After arraignment, a judge sets a bail amount. Most people cannot pay the bail balance without help from a bail service. The defendant’s family must pay a small portion of the bail, usually 10% of the total amount, to receive help with bail.
The bail agent will quickly secure the rest of the bail with cash payment collateral or by setting up payment options. It is common for cash payment plus collateral to be acquired before posting bail. A contract is also standard between the agency and the defendant to appear in court after being released, follow the judge’s guidelines, and follow up on check-ins.
