The You Walk Bail Bond Process
When an individual is arrested and taken to into custody, a bail amount is set by the arresting authority which must be paid in order for the person to be released. Often, the bail amount is considerably high due to the nature of the accused offense. If someone is unable to pay this fee, they can hire a bail bond company to pay the bond for a small fee. The bail bond is a surety bond that is paid to the court as a type of insurance that the person shows back up to court for their court hearing. If the individual does not show up for their scheduled court appearance, the bond will be rescinded. The bond company will lose the money they posted for the bail, and the court will issue a warrant for the arrest of the person who has missed their court date.
If an individual is accused of a crime that is not considered very serious, often a bail can be posted immediately after arrest. However, if the crime is considered serious, the court will not allow bail to be made until a bail hearing is held with a judge. The judge will hear the details of the arrest and decide if bail will be allowed and will set the amount.
