How does a bail bond work?

A bail bond is a financial guarantee that is provided to the court by a bail bondsman or bail bond agency on behalf of a defendant who has been arrested and is awaiting trial.

When someone is arrested, they may be required to post bail in order to be released from custody while awaiting trial.

A judge sets the defendant's bail amount. An Alabama bail bondsman will post the bond once a 10% to 15% premium is paid by the defendant or co-signor. If the defendant doesn't appear in court, the indemnitor owes the bondsman 100% of the bond.
