Bail Bonds Questions

What is bail?
Bail is a process of our legal system, which allows a person to be released from jail after paying a sum of money to the court. The money is held by the court until all of the court proceedings, regarding the arrest charges, are completed. Bail is viewed as a promise to the court that the arrested person will show up for all court date appearances. The courts will keep all of the money if the arrested person does not show up for a court appearance, and order a warrant for arrest.
What is the purpose of a bail bond?
In most cases, it is easier for an arrested person to pay bail to the courts through a bail bonds agency. Rather than paying the full amount of the bail, a bail bonds agency will charge an arrested person a percentage of the bail. In the state of Nevada, the bail bonds agency will charge 15% of the entire bail amount. For example, if bail is set at $1,000.00 the costs to bail out of jail is $150.00. The bail bonds agency will deliver a bail bond to the courts, rather than cash. The bail bond is given to the courts for a jail release and the courts treat the bail bond as though the full cash amount of the bail was paid including the promise to appear in court.

Knowledge Base

What are the differences between the Bail Amount and the Premium Amount?
The bail amount is the full amount of the bail set by the court. The premium bail (bail bond cost) is the dollar amount charged by our agency for providing the jail with a bond to release the defendant.
What is an indemnitor?
The indemnitor is the co-signer of the bail bond and is usually the person making the initial payment for the bail bond. The indemnitor is responsible for the defendant showing up to all scheduled court appearances and has inherent rights as the co-signer.
Is the premium refundable?
No. Once the bail bond has been posted to the jail, the premium is not refundable regardless of the defendants innocence, case dismissal or unjust arrest.
