What is Bail Bonds?

Bail Bonds is a system implemented by the Supreme Court used to determine if a defendant can be released on a bond which has to be posted by a bail bondsman a bail bonding agency to guarantee that the defendant will appear in court while his or her case is pending. The judges use a bail matrix to determine if the defendant can be released on surety bail or cash bail based on whether he or she is a flight risk or a threat to the public and has a lengthy record.


If the judge sets a surety bond for the defendant that means that someone will have to go to a bail bondsman and pay a percentage of the bond on behalf of the defendant. In the state of Indiana when a judge has issued a surety bond that means 8% or 10% of the bond has to be paid for the defendant to be released. The individual who is also known as the indemnity is also responsible for the defendant to appear at all his or her court dates. The bail bondsman is also responsible as well to ensuring the defendant appears at all his or her court dates. In the event the defendant fails to appear in court the judge will issue the bail bonding agency an order to produce the defendant. An order to produce gives the bail bonding agency or bail enforcement agent (Bounty Hunter) to locate the defendant take him or her into custody and return them to the court. If the judge issues a cash bond that means that the bond has to be paid directly to the county clerk for the defendant's release.
