What About Bail?
A defendant's bail is determined by several things. They type of crime and its severity are key factors. In most cases, when the charge is a misdemeanor or minor felony (that doesn't include weapons, bodily injury, or property damage), a bail bond schedule is used to determine the amount of bail. If the charge is a felony and involves, weapons of any kind, bodily injury, and/or property damage, the defendant may have to remain in jail until they can appear in front of the judge at an arraignment hearing. With this type of case, the judge must also determine if the defendant is a potential flight risk. The judge may choose to deny bail if the defendant is a flight risk or is showing signs of instability that may result in them hurting themselves or others.
The Role of A Co-Signor
If you choose to be a co-signor, you are taking full responsibility for the total amount of the bond over and above the 10% premium. As a co-signer, it's up to you to maintain contact with both the bail bonds agent and the defendant. It also includes keeping all of the defendant's information up to date. Any changes in employment, phone numbers, and addresses must be reported to both the court and the bail bond agent. It's also beneficial for the co-signer to work with the defendant to ensure they appear in court at all of their scheduled hearings.
Anytime a scheduled court hearing is missed, the judge has the right to issue a bench warrant and start proceedings to forfeit the defendant's bond. If the bond is forfeited, the co-signer is responsible for paying the full amount of the bond on demand to the court. The only way the co-signer will be relieved of their responsibility is to have the defendant returned to the custody of the jail and the bond released. While this can be a lengthy process, once the bond is released, the co-signer is no longer obligated to pay for it.
