What you need to know about bail.

We’re all familiar with the term “bail,” and have either seen or read about various crimes where the culprit is released from jail via bail, or is arrested with a posted bond amount (which, depending on the nature of the crime, can be quite hefty). But what exactly is bail, and why are most defendants better off utilizing a bond? There are a plethora of reasons why, and many of them have to do with ensuring they keep their jobs, kids, homes, and loved ones.

What is Bail Bond

A bail bond is a contractual agreement between a bail bond agent and the defendant or co-signer to secure the release of the defendant from jail pending trial.

Types of Bail Bonds

There are seven different types of bail bonds, and different methods to obtain them. Getting yourself out of custody is rarely an easy process. ABC Bail Bond is here to help. 

A bond is usually set at 10% of the total bail, which means if someone’s bail has been set at $20,000, the amount of $2,000 will be needed to purchase a bond.
