No one wants to stay in jail whilst waiting for their trial to start. The bail system allows an accused to remain free in lieu of posting bail. Once a defendant posts bail he or she will be released from custody. The defendant will be expected to return to court and the bail is type of guarantee to ensure the defendants appearance in court on due date.
Once the bail bondman has posted a bail bond with the court, he is liable to pay your bail should you not appear in court on the required date. A bail bondman does not have to deposit cash but merely a bond that bind the agent to pay should the defendant skip bail.
The bail agency is responsible for ensuring a defendant appears in court on trial date. A bail agent does not want a defendant to skip bail and may require a defendant to check in by phone or person or be monitored in some way. If the accused fails to appear in court, the judge will issue a bench warrant which allows a bond agent to hire a bounty hunter. A bail bondman can also act against relatives who stood as surety to recover the bail money forfeited to the court.
