Bail Basics 101
The right to post bail to obtain an early release from jail is your Constitutional Right per the 8th Amendment. The judge will set a defendant's bail according to the nature and severity of the crime. The amount of bail must be equal with the severity of the crime. For example, a misdemeanor assault bond may be as low as $1000, while a first-degree murder charge may carry a bond of $1 million or more. Once bail has been set, a bond can be written that charges a 10% premium that is non-refundable and non-negotiable. This amount is set by the state and cannot be changed. Once the bond has been secured and the defendant agrees to be responsible for the defendant and their compliance with the court's demands, the defendant will be released from jail and allowed to return home.
What You Need to Do
Once a co-signer agrees to the terms of the bond contract, they are financially responsible for the total cost of the bond if the defendant does not appear in court or does not comply with other demands the court may have put in place. If a co-signer decides they no longer want to bear the burden of this responsibility, they can contact the bail bonds agent and revoke the bond. When this occurs, a warrant will be issued for the defendant and they will be returned to jail. In most cases, this occurs when the defendant gives some indication that they have no intention of appearing in court or if they are not staying in contact with the bail bonds agent so their whereabouts can be verified.
If the defendant and co-signer work together, the defendant will appear at all of their scheduled court hearings and comply with the stipulations the court has put in place. This can mean attending drug and alcohol classes, taking random drug tests, and not being arrested or charged with any other crimes while out on bond. The majority of defendants who are released on bond follow through with all of their obligations and their case is eventually completed and the co-signer is released from their contract.
