A court may offer an accused person a chance to pay a certain amount of money and he will be released on a temporarily basis. This amount requested by the court is called a bail bond. If the accused person is unable to raise the amount required to pay the bail, he can get a bail bond from a bail bondsman. A bail bond is a form of surety that the accused person will appear in court on the set date of trial.

A bail bondsman is a person who secures the release of an accused person by paying bail bond to the court. He has the responsibility of ensuring the accused person appears in court as required. He charges the accused person only a percentage of the bail amount. He then pays deposits the full bond amount to the court to secure the accused person’s release. If the accused person fails to appear in court on the trial date, the bail bondsman forfeits the total amount paid to the court. A bail bonds man makes his money from commission charged to the accused person. This commission is a percentage of the total bail amount.
