Bail Bond Company and The Defendant

When an accused person cannot afford to pay the full bailing amount – which is in most cases – then he or she may be able to call a bail bond company for help, as the company offers a surety bond that acts as an insurance that the defendant will show up in court when the district judge says so.  

Under California law, the cost of the jail bond is typically just 10% of the bail. After this, the bail bond company may require the accused to secure the bond, whether with money or collateral, which can be jewelry, the deed of the house, or other valuables. When this process is done, the bail bond company will send a representative to the court to pay part of the full amount of the bail, a process that guarantees the payment of the rest in case the accused does not appear when required to do so.

  • Assets forfeiture

This is a criminal justice financial obligation that typically applies to some alleged proceeds or instruments of crime, such as terrorist activities and drug-related crimes. Assets forfeiture is also known as “confiscation,” as it confiscates assets that could have been beneficial to the individual or organization. 

  • Private investigation 

If a fugitive disappears after release from jail, the bail bondsman or bail bond recovery agent needs to use their tracing skills to locate them on the run or apprehend them, a task that can be difficult in itself. Private investigators help complement this process. 

Bail Bonds agents get the criminal out of jail and repay him or her by running off and leaving the agency with a large financial penalty; after this, the bail bonds company sends out a specialized apprehension team to secure the investment and return defendants to trial.
