Bail is an amount of money set by the courts in exchange for the release of an inmate while he awaits his court hearing. The purpose of bail is to ensure the defendant will not fail to appear in court on the scheduled date. Bail amounts are set by the magistrate judge based on the type of crime committed. However, not all crimes or arrestees are eligible for bail in order to protect the community.
A bail bond is a surety bond provided by a state licensed bail bondsman that allows a defendant the ability to be released from jail while awaiting his court hearing for a fraction of the full set bail amount by the courts. The bail bond amount is also referred to as the ‘bail premium’. Typically, a bail bondsman charges 10% of the full bail amount for state bonds and 15% for federal bonds.
Once the arrestee has been booked into jail, the bail bond application has been completed and the payment has been made to the bail agent, it takes anywhere between two to twelve hours for an inmate to be released. However, a reliable bail bondsman will begin the process as soon as the bail bond application and payment has been processed. After the bond has been posted, it is up to the jail administration to complete the process.
