How to Bail Someone Out of Jail

When a person is arrested, they are booked into jail. Soon after that they will go in front of a judge (or an administrator) and they will set the bail amount. The amount of bail depends on the severity of the crime and the record of the arrested person. After bail is determined, a friend or family member can either pay the full amount (called a cash bond) or they can use a bail bonds company. The benefit of using a bail bondsman is that the person is only responsible for paying a certain, non-refundable amount of money to secure the bond. As long as the defendant shows up for court, the person who paid the premium is off the hook.
