What is a Bail Bond?
A bail bond, or “surety bond” offers the court a financial incentive in order to secure the release of a defendant prior to a trial. It simply states that, should the defendant choose not to appear for a court date, the court will receive a monetary settlement.
Bail is often set at tens-of-thousands of dollars (or hundreds of thousands, in very serious cases). Most people cannot afford to pay that kind of money, and so a bail bondsman acts as an intermediary between the individual and the court. By charging the defendant 10% of the total bail amount, a bail bondsman “guarantees” to the court that the defendant will be present for all of their court dates, thus securing the release of the defendant from jail.
The Cost of a Bail Bond
When a defendant is arrested, booked and processed, a bail amount is set by the county bail schedule. This amount is based on several factors, and averages about $20,000 in the State of California. Once bail is set, a bail bond can be acquired for 10% of the total bail amount. This means that, if bail is set at $20,000, the cost of a bail bond will be $2,000.
All major credit and debit cards are accepted, including: Visa, Master Card, American Express and Discover. Bail can also be paid by money order, personal or business check, account transfer or wire transfer.
