If you get arrested, you will be held in some facility such as county jail pending your trial. However, you don’t have to stay in jail until the day of your trial. After all it might be months before a court date is possible. You might also be innocent. Even if you are guilty your offence might not be serious enough to justify a lengthy incarceration. However, in order to get out of jail you have to provide some security that will satisfy a court that you will indeed appear for your trial or hearing. This security is often in the form of a bail bond.
Bonding agencies such as All About Bail Bonds specialize in arranging bail for defendants. This means a bail bondsman will act on your behalf and arrange your release after posting bail in the form of a bail bond. The bail bond will be act as collateral and will be a guarantee of the monetary value of the bail.
The defendant or accused will then be released and expected to return to court on the date of the trial. If the defendant does not return or skips bail, the bonding agency will still be responsible for the bail. In such a case the bonding will likely appoint a bounty hunter to find the accused and return him or her to stand trial.
In order to arrange your bail and secure your release the bail agency charges a fee. This is usually 10% of the bail amount. The bail bondman may also require some form or security from the accused or the family of the accused or someone else who is willing to help.
