Bail is simply the temporary release of a prisoner in exchange for security given. Its sole purpose is to assure the attendance of the defendant each and every time the court requests that person appear until the case has been adjudicated. A bail bond is a surety bond. Bonding companies are licensed by the state Department of Insurance. The bond premium is a legal form of surety insurance to the court which ensures the court that the accused will fulfill the court’s requirement to appear in court as many times as necessary until the charge(s) are resolved by the court. If the accused does not appear in court, the bail bond company is liable to the court for the full amount of the bond. Feel free to contact us for more information cause we know BONDS.
