Definition of Bail

Traditionally, bail is a form of property deposited or pledged to a court to release a suspect from jail, on the understanding that the suspect will return for trial or forfeit the bail. In some cases, bail money may be returned at the end of a trial if all court appearances are made, regardless of whether the person is found guilty or not guilty of the crime. If the suspect does not have the funds to post bail themselves, a bail bondsman is contacted. A bail bond agent is any person or corporation that will act as a guarantee and pledge money or property as bail for the appearance of an accused criminal in court. Bonds agents have a standing security agreement with local court officials, in which they agree to post a “blanket” bond, which will pay the court if any defendant for whom the bond agent is responsible for does not appear. The bond agent usually has an arrangement with an insurance company, bank or another credit provider to draw on such security, even during the hours when banks are not open. This eliminates the need for the bondsman to deposit cash or property with the court every time a new defendant is bailed out. In most jurisdictions, bond agents must be licensed to do business within the state. All-Pro Bail Bonds is currently licensed to post bail in the state of California and complies with Insurance code 1820 by displaying the license in all office locations throughout the state.
