Facts About Bail

How Bail Works?

When someone is charged with a crime most often they are entitled to bail.

The amount of bail is set by The Superior Court Judges. An individual contacts a bail agent and enters into a contractual agreement for release of a defendant. The defendant must appear in court each and every time the judge requires them to do so. For this service, there is a premium charged. The person entering into the contract with the bonding company is not released of their responsibility until all obligations have been met and the bond is exonerated. In some cases, collateral may or may not be necessary.

Why bail out your loved one immediately?

The bail amount may change if you wait for the defendant to go to court.

Other holds may be placed on the defendant while in custody such as a 1275 hold, which could be placed on the defendant and a 1275 hold requires additional approval from the court for the release of the defendant.
