An individual charged with a violent crime in Gilroy who desires to win release during the criminal proceedings turns to a bail bond company for assistance. Depending on the amount of the bail bond needed to obtain a release, a person seeking release may need to obtain a co-signer for the bond and put up collateral as well (like the title to a residence). The ultimate purpose behind a bond is to ensure that a person charged with a crime appears at future court proceedings. The court considers an individuals connection to the community and prior criminal history (if any) when considering release pending adjudication of a case.
