How Do Bail Bonds Work?
Being locked up in jail is serious business. You now need a Professional Bail Bondsman who knows what they are doing to guide you through this stressful ordeal.
A person who is suspected of a crime is arrested by a law enforcement agency, booked, and processed to then appear before a Judge to determine eligibility for Bail. This process involves taking a mugshot, fingerprints, and a statement. The accused individual may either be held in custody until their trial or released on Bail pending a Trial Date.
The Bail Bondsman
The amount of bail required is determined by the State. The Defendant, or someone working on their behalf, contacts a Bail Bondsman to handle their case in the event the Defendant cannot afford the bail. Both the Defendant, and the Co-Signer / Indemnitor are responsible for payment of the Bail Bond Fee in Full, no matter the legal outcome of Trial. The Defendant cannot Bail themselves out of Jail. A Co-Signer / Indemnitor is required to do so.
The Bail Bond agency is backed up by an insurance company, or Surety, and they pay the total Bail Bond in full if the defendant fails to make their court appearance. In exchange for making this payment to the court, the Bail Bond Agent collects a premium from the Defendant. The Bail Bond Fee paid to 2 Brothers Bail Bonds in Maryland is 10% of the total Bail Bond set by the State of Maryland.
Responsibility Of The Bail Bondsman
When an agent puts up a Bail Bond for a defendant, the accused is effectively released into our custody. The Bondsman, and the Co-Signer / Indemnitor become responsible for ensuring that the Defendant appears in court. Together, our financial interests lie in making sure Defendants behave the way the Court Demands them to. Simply put, we both do everything possible to make sure the Defendant stays completely away from any associations and so called Friends that can make it tempting with pier pressure to break the law while free on Bail, no matter how small an infraction it may be. When a defendant fails to make an appearance, the Court will hold the Bail Bondsman and Co-Signer / Indemnitor responsible for 100% of the Bail Bond the Court Issued. Showing up on the date and time ordered by the Court is mandatory except in rare instances related to Court scheduling delays and unforeseen circumstances, and is absolutely Job One for us to make sure that happens.
If the Defendant does not appear in Court as ordered, the process of Legal Recovery, Bounty Hunting, takes effect immediately. This is not a pleasant process and rest assured, the Defendant will be captured, rearrested and incarcerated. The Co Signer / Indemnitor can and will be Legally charged up to 15% of the total Bail Bond costs associated in capturing the Defendant.
Together, let us make sure this does not happen. Their is no better way to destroy any credibility a Defendant may have remaining than not to show up ready and prepared for Court.
