When a person is arrested, he or she may be "released on bail" for a court set amount of money. BAIL is a way to to have a defendent leave jail until trial and guarantees the appearance of the defendant at any future court dates.
Sometimes the amount of bail may be more than the accused can pay by him or herself. A BAIL BOND is also known as a “Surety Bond”. Usually, a friend, relative, attorney or defendant will contact a bail bond company who will collect basic information and assess the risk involved with granting that person a bail bond. The Bail Bonding Agency, acting for the defendant, will arrange with the court to have a suspect released from jail pending the trial in exchange for money or collateral, which may be cash, assets, or a bond. A bond is a surety that the full bail amount will be paid if the defendent doesn't show up in court.
