How Do Bail Bonds Work?
When a court sets bail for someone accused of committing a crime (the defendant), it means that the defendant can “post” that amount of money by paying it to the court. The court holds that money until the trial and other related court proceedings have been completed, as an incentive for the defendant to show up for all scheduled court dates. The court sets the bail amount. Sometimes, it’s just not possible for defendants or their loved ones to come up with the money needed to make bail. That’s where bail bonds come in.
Bail bonds, issued through bail bondsmen, generally cost a fraction of the total bond amount. When you get a bail bond, you’ll be asked to put up some collateral for the bond, as insurance in case the defendant doesn’t attend his or her scheduled court dates.
If you contact an Olympia bail bondsman to help your friend or loved one, you’ll need to know where the defendant is being held — including the name, city and state of the jail. You’ll also need to provide the defendant’s full legal name. If you know the amount of bail set by the court, notify the bondsman to find out how much the bond will cost.
After a bond is issued, the defendant is usually released within a matter of hours. Defendants must attend all of their court hearings until their cases have been finalized, and they are responsible for making sure they are aware of all upcoming court dates.
