Bail bond laws govern the process in which a person is arrested for a crime and their appearance in court. It is always good for the accused to abide by the bail bond laws for the process to go smoothly. Below are a few facts about bail bond laws:
- Bail bond laws are divided into state and federal, depending on the type of crime committed. Every state has their own bail bond system.
- There are some bonds that are contingent on behavior, such as cash bonds, property bonds and surety bonds.
- A bond agent cannot stray from the bail bond fees because the bond schedule is predetermined.
- According to some bail bond laws, a bond must be raised within a certain period of time.
- Failure to comply with bail can result in a repeated arrest and could mean incurred charges for the co-signer of the bond.
- The bail bond fees which could be 10 or 15 percent, is non-refundable even if the bond is fulfilled.
- A co-signer is responsible for making sure that the accused appears in court, and also responsible for any costs or fees if the accused does not comply.
- A judge always has the right to deny bail depending on circumstances such as threat to society and likelihood to flee.
