If you’re not aware of bail, it’s basically a amount of money that a person needs to pay to get released from jail until summoned for the court hearing and sentence. Similar to a court using a check as a guarantee that the defendant will appear in court for the hearing. If the person isn’t able to pay the bail sum the person will not be freed from the jail. The person must stay in jail until their court date.
If you are able to pay for the bail, then you are able to pay the bail. You’ll get the cash in full regardless of whether you’re found guilty or not.
However, in most instances bail bonds companies can help those who need to post bail. Although the cost of bail may be low, you’ll never get back any of your bail funds. Plus, if the defendant is not present on the scheduled court date or fails to comply with the conditions of the release, then the money paid may be forfeited.
