The Bail Bondsman and Our Rights

help me get our of jail

“Get me out of here!”

You get the call.  It’s 2:00 in the morning, “Can you help me?  I got arrested and I am at the jail.  Can you please help me get out . . . now?!”

It’s a stressful situation.  So let me help you understand some basic rights we all have and how you and a bail bondsman can help your family member, friend, relative or even sometimes, an employee access those rights.

Our Rights as U.S. Citizens

Bail Bonds, the Bail Bondsman and Our Constitutional Rights

Don’t miss the video below.

First here are our rights:

  • Presumption of innocence – more commonly said as “Innocent until proven guilty.” The concept goes way back in the history of most civilized nations. It can be traced back before Common Law to as far back as 6th Century Roman Law.

  • 5th Amendment to the Constitution – No person shall be…deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law…

    8th amendment about excessive bail

    8th Amendment: Excessive bail shall not be required…

  • 6th AmendmentIn all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial…have the Assistance of Counsel for his defence.

  • 8th AmendmentExcessive bail shall not be required,…nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.

This paragraph from The Free Dictionary tempers these ideas somewhat as we have come to use them in practice.

The presumption of innocence principle supports the practice of releasing criminal defendants from jail prior to trial. However, the government may detain some criminal defendants without bail through the end of trial. The Eighth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution states that excessive bail shall not be required, but it is widely accepted that governments have the right to detain through trial a defendant of a serious crime who is a flight risk or poses a danger to the public. In such cases the presumption of innocence is largely theoretical.

As a society, we need to balance the rights of individuals with the need for law, order and justice.

For justice to take place in our legal system, the accused must stand trial.  But for our rights to

be protected, we usually can’t just lock up the accused until the trial as that would not allow them time to participate in their own defense. They might lose their jobs, their families, the support of their friends, etc. In those circumstances, it may also turn out to be “cruel and unusual punishment.” Particularly if the accused is later found to be “not guilty.” And it would certainly not follow the “presumption of innocence” principle.

So how can we make it probable that the accused will show up for trial, but allow them to be released from jail in the meantime?

Sometimes, if it is a first offense for the accused, if the accused is an upstanding member of the community with strong ties to it, he/she has family support, steady employment, and the crime is not severe, the judge may release the accused “O.R.” or on their Own Recognizance.

Most of the time though bail is required.

Bail is defined as:

Security, usually a sum of money, exchanged for the release of an arrested person as a guarantee of that person’s appearance for trial.

If the bail amount is low enough, the accused can ‘post’ it themselves, perhaps with help of family. The accused then has an incentive to show up for court until the case is concluded. At that time, the bail will be refunded to the accused.

The Bail Bondsman’s Important Role

Gavel on cash bail

Bail can be achieved by posting cash, property, or a surety bond.

Far more often than not, people can’t afford to post their own cash bail. And that’s where a bail bondsman can fill a very important role. He/she can post a bond for the accused and get them out  – for a fee, usually somewhere between 10% to 15% of the amount set by the court.

Generally, the bail bondsman requires a third party co-signer, indemnitor or guarantor who additionally assumes responsibility for the defendant while they are out on bail and co-assumes financial liability to guarantee the full bond amount.

The beauty of the whole arrangement is that through the use of a bail bondsman, the courts get not just one, but three people promising that the defendant will appear, the defendant is joined by the bondsman and the cosigner.  All three have much to lose if the defendant fails to appear.


Yet the defendant can be released for only the price of the bail bondman’s fee – which is much more affordable than the full bail and very much preferable to staying in jail!

With a lot of alternatives offered, it is imperative that someone know and understand their options prior to making a decision. Everyone’s situation is different and it is necessary to select the very best bonding company for your demands.

Experience is a vital part of how well a bondsman performs their job. Only by doing it many times and working with many of the local jails and courts can a bail bondsman find out the important processes and strategies to speed up a defendant’s release. Establishing an understanding of each facility’s method is vital to supplying a top quality solution.

A bail bonds firm and each bondsman should be totally certified by the state in which they operate. For instance, someone selling Richmond (VA) bail bonds ought to be certified as a bail bondsman by the State of Virginia.

Some bail bondsmen offer a payment plan, card repayments, no security bonds and occasionally funding. It is a good sign when a bail bondsman takes the time to comprehend a customer’s monetary position and after that provides a remedy that fits their needs.

The accessibility of a bail bondsman is extremely vital. A bail bondsman needs to be accessible when you or your relative needs them. This not only applies to the time when he is first posting the bail bond, but likewise after the offender is released. There are often times when the bail bondsman is required throughout the legal procedings. Will yours be there when you need him or her?

Bondsmen are superabundant. Deciding on the finest bail bondsman is not easy. Understanding what divides a good bail bondsman from a bad one is essential in selecting the most effective expert for your needs …and, of course, to help you get out of jail fast.

You also need a great attorney!  In this YouTube video, the defendant’s attorney did  his best, but bail was still denied. (That’s very rare, by the way.):

    2. To make an emergency parachute jump from an aircraft, as in: “Holy Sh..!”

What Is Bail

What is Bail?

Bail is the  amount of money set by the magistrate, police, or judge, depending on the state you are in, to make sure that a person goes to court or returns to court if they are released  after they have been arrested.

When is Bail set?   

The Bail amount is set at the time of arrest.

If the defendant cannot afford the amount, he/she can petition the judge at arraignment for a lower amount. And, of course, they can use the services of a bail bondsman.

What is the difference between Bail and a Bail Bond?

Bail is the cash payment paid by the defendant to the court.

A bond is the bondsman’s pledge to make good on the bail if the defendant doesn’t appear.


Get Out of Jail Free?

Get Out of Jail Free? Yes.

Sometimes people are released “on their own recognizance,” or “O.R.” A defendant released O.R. must simply sign a promise to show up in court.  Then they are not required to post bail.

A defendant commonly requests release on his or her own recognizance at the first court appearance called the arraignment. If the judge denies the request, the defendant then asks for low bail.

It helps if the defendant has strong ties to a community so they are thought to be unlikely to flee. Factors that may convince a judge to grant an O.R. release include the following:

  • The defendant has family members – parents, a spouse, children –  living in the community.
  • The defendant has resided in the same community for many years.
  • The defendant has a steady job.
  • The defendant has little or no past criminal record
  • The defendant has been charged with previous crimes but has always appeared as required.


A person’s first thought upon landing in jail  often is “How can I get out — fast?!”

Because, nobody wants to stay in jail one minute longer than they have to.

The usual way to get out of jail fast is to “post bail.”

Bail can be cash, a bond, or property that an arrested person puts up to ensure that he or she will appear in court when ordered to do so. If the defendant doesn’t show up, the court keeps the bail and issues a warrant for the defendant’s arrest.

How Bail Is Set

Judges set the amount.  Because many people want to get out of jail immediately , many jails have standard bail schedules that specify the amounts for common crimes. An arrested person can often get out of jail quickly by paying the amount set forth in the station house schedule.

How does bail work?

This YouTube video entitled “How do Bail Bonds Work” is done by a legal expert:

If a suspect wants to post bail but can’t afford the amount required by the bail schedule, the suspect can ask a judge to lower it. Depending on each state’s procedures, a request for lower bail may be made either in a special setting or hearing or when the suspect appears in court for the first time.8thAmendment to the Constitution sets rights to bail

The Eighth Amendment to the Constitution requires that bail not be excessive. This means that bail should not be used to raise money for the government or to punish a person for being suspected of committing a crime. The purpose of bail is to allow the arrested person to remain free until convicted of a crime, and the amount of bail must be no more than is reasonably necessary to keep the suspect from fleeing before a case is over.

So much for theory. In fact, many judges set an impossibly high amount in particular types of cases (such as those involving drug sales or rape), knowing that the high bail will effectively keep the suspect in jail until the case is over. Although bail set for this purpose — called preventative detention — is thought by many to violate the Constitution, courts have uniformly rejected this argument (the issue has never been decided by the U.S. Supreme Court, the ultimate arbiter of what is and is not constitutional).

Conditions of Bail

Bailed-out suspects commonly must comply with “conditions of release.” If a suspect violates a condition, a judge may revoke bail and order the suspect re-arrested and returned to jail. Some bail conditions, such as a requirement that a suspect “obey all laws,” are common. Other conditions may reflect the crime for which a suspect was arrested. For example, a judge may order a domestic violence suspect not to contact the complaining witness.

Paying Bail

Bail can take the following forms:

  • cash or check for the full amount of the bail
  • property worth the full amount
  • a bond (that is, a guaranteed payment of the full bail amount), or
  • a waiver of payment on the condition that the defendant appear in court at the required time (commonly called “release on one’s own recognizance”).

A bond that costs 10% of the bail amount may sound like a good deal compared to posting cash bail, but buying a bond may cost more in the long run. If the full amount of the bail is paid, it will be refunded (less a small administrative fee) when the case is over and all required appearances have been made.

In contrast, a bail bondsman’s fee is nonrefundable. In addition, the bond seller may require “collateral”. This means that the person who pays for the bail bond must also give the bond seller a financial interest in some of the person’s property. The bond seller can cash in on this interest if the suspect fails to appear in court.
