Let’s start from the very beginning. Let’s say you were arrested. What happens next? You go to jail, obviously. Here you will wait until you can appear before a judge. This is where they will go over the details of your case and bond amount. After your first appearance you have two options. 1) Post bail. 2) Wait in jail for your trial date. Trial dates are set weekly, sometimes months out from the day of the arrest. The purpose of bail is to ensure the court that you show up on your set trial date. The cost of bail is set very high for insurance that you will show up to court.
How Do I Post Bail?
If you decide to post bail you have two more options to choose from:
In either of the two options, if you miss your court date, the bail will be surrendered. If you had a cash bond, you will no longer receive the money back after trial. If you hired a bail bondsman to put up the bail for you, then the bail bonds agent has the authority to locate you and surrender you to the court. This is where Dog the Bounty Hunter comes into action.
