How Bail Works:
BEFORE YOU SIGN
It is the responsibility of the indemnitor, typically a family member/close friend of the defendant, to see that the entire premium is paid. A Bail Bond is an appearance Bond and is good for one year only. Ifthe case continues for more than one year an additional 15% will be duefor each year that the defendant remains out on bail. The premium charge
(15% plus a forty dollar court fee) for bail is non-refundable and isconsidered fully earned upon the defendants release from jail. Other feesthat can be charged for the posting of a bond are long distance telephone calls, posing fees, travel fees, or any other incidental expenses. An additional $10.00 will be charged for any returned checks.
IF THE DEFENDANT FAILS TO APPEAR
In the case of a forfeiture (the defendants failure to appear in court) it isthe duty of the Indemnitor to pay the full amount of the bail and/or seethat the defendant appears in court for reinstatement of the bail and/orlocate the defendant to surrender him/her back to custody. A MINIMUMOF $125.00 IS DUE PER CASE FOR BEING LATE OR MISSING COURT FOR ANY REASON! This includes medical or transportation problems. If thedefendant or indemnitor moves it is the responsibility of the Indemnitor tonotify the bond company of this change within 48 hours. Failure to do socould result in the surrender of the defendant back to custody of thecourt. (No premium would be refunded).
IF THE DEFENDANT REFUSES TO APPEAR
The law provides that the Indemnitor is liable for all expenses if we needto take legal action. The defendants refusal to return to court can add upexpenses such as skip-tracing fees, attorney fees, court costs, andrewards. The Indemnitor is liable for all costs up to the face amount of thebond again. In other words, the Indemnitor could be liable for up to twice
the face value of the bond.
