When a judge sets bail, the person charged with a criminal offense faces a choice. They can remain in custody until the trial concludes with a verdict. That could take months, years, or even decades. On the other hand, they or someone they know could pay the full amount in cash. Depending on the size of the bail, that may be more than the average person can afford.
The final option is to seek help from a bail bond company, which will post most of the bail in exchange for collateral. Bail bonds act like insurance policies. They allow a criminal defendant to be released from jail on condition that they appear before a judge on a specified date. If the defendant fails to appear in court, the court keeps the bail money, and the bail bond company has the right to seize the collateral.
A criminal defendant, or someone close to them who acts as a co-signer, contacts a professional bail bond provider like North Main Bail Bond Co. The bail bondsman puts up the money on two conditions:
1) The defendant or co-signer must pay a nonrefundable 10% fee up front. The bond company will then pay the other 90%.
2) The defendant or a friend/relative must offer some form of collateral in case the defendant misses the court date and the bail bond company loses its money.
