What is Bail?

This is a good place to start when asking how bail bonds work. After all, “what is bail” and “what is a bail bond” are questions you certainly don’t want to be asking behind bars.

Bail is a financial arrangement that a bail bonding agency will make on behalf of a criminal defendant. The purpose of the bail system is to guarantee the appearance of a criminal defendant in court. A bail bonding agency, like Frank S. Calabretta’s Bail House Bail Bonds, can arrange to have a suspect released from jail pending the trial in exchange for money or collateral, which may be cash, assets, or a bond. The court sets the monetary value of the bail and the bail bond agency can pay the amount in full or a percentage upfront and the rest at the arraignment. A bail bond, therefore, is a surety that the full bail amount will be paid and the criminal defendant will appear in court on a set date.

The Bail Bond Process

Arrest and Booking: Pre Bail Services

When someone is arrested on suspicion of a crime, that person will be taken to jail for booking. The suspect will be searched for any weapons, have a mug shot taken, he or she will be fingerprinted, and asked for a statement. The suspect’s personal belongings are cataloged and retained and from that point, the suspect has no access to money, credit cards, or cell phones.

The booking process has many steps and can take anywhere from an hour to a few hours to complete. This often depends on the size of the jail and how busy the jail is. The booking process mostly consists of a background check, warrant check, and updating the computer system with the criminal charge and suspect information. Once the criminal defendant or suspect is “processed in” he or she is taken to a cell. This is usually when that infamous “one call” is given to the defendant and it is at this time he or she can request bail services directly from a bail bond agency or ask friends or family to pull together what is needed to post bail.

Acquiring a Bail Bond

A bail bond company is usually contacted by the defendant’s friend, relative, attorney, or the defendant themself. Bail services are not able to start, however, until the arrest and booking processes are complete. Once they are completed, the bail bond company will start by collecting basic information about the defendant’s situation. To assess the risk involved in the bail bond, most bondsmen ask questions such as where is the detainee being held, how long have they been there, what are the charges, where is their place of work, etc. If and only if there are no government holds on the defendant and the bail bond company determines there is little or no risk of the bailee not appearing in court on their appointed date, then the bail bond is made available for purchase.
The customer purchasing the bail bond will need to sign bail bond documents including the following:

  • A Bail Bond Application
  • A Bail Indemnity Agreement
  • A Receipt

Once the bail bond paperwork is finalized, a licensed bail bond agent will “post” the bail bond at the appropriate detention facility or jail that will result in the release of the defendant. From the time a customer first calls into a bail bond company for bail services to the release of the defendant, there is a wait time anywhere between about 20 minutes to two hours so the process of acquiring a bail bond is usually fairly quick. The quicker the better is what most bailees prefer. The experienced bail bonds agents at Frank Calabretta’s Bail House do their best to get all the paperwork processed and finalized in a timely manner.

What Happens if the Bailee is a No-Show in Court?

The bail bond company and the surety company are notified by the court that the individual failed to appear and are mailed a Notice of Forfeiture. The bail bond company will reach out to the defendant and co-signer on the bail bond to see if a court date can get rescheduled and get the individual back on track for their court appearances, and their bail bond. Sometimes the bail bond agency works with the individual’s attorney to get this process done. The Court will give the bail bond agency and surety company a certain amount of time to accomplish a reappearance; which is usually 180-days.

If you are purchasing a bail bond on someone else’s behalf, always understand your bail bond contract responsibility. The bail bond company may call upon the co-signer to help locate and detain the individual who missed their court appearance under their bail bond. All parties have a financial responsibility under the bail bond to make sure the bailee succeeds at appearing for all of their court appearances under their bail bond contract.

When a Bail Bond is Not an Option

There are instances when bail bonds are not available to citizens. You can only make a bond and be released from jail if you have no other holds or detainers. A detainer or hold is placed on a criminal defendant by another governmental agency which requires the defendant to be held pending clearance of the hold.

For example, there may be a warrant placed against an inmate for pending charges from another jurisdiction or even state. Or if a criminal defendant has several unpaid traffic tickets, he or she may be held in jail until they are paid off in monetary or jail time. If the criminal defendant cannot make a bond or does not qualify for pretrial release, he or she remains in jail while the case is pending.
