Surety Bond- An alternative to Cash Bail*, a surety bond is used when the accused cannot afford to pay his or her bail. A friend or family member usually contacts a bail bonds agent who agrees to pay the full value of the bond if the accused does not appear in court. In return, the client is charged a non-refundable premium and depending on the case will collect some sort of collateral such as cash, a title for a house, car, boat, jewelry, or electronics. The State Regulated premiums are 10% for bonds in the amount of $500 - $5,000 and 7% plus $150.00 processing fee for bonds over $5,000. If collateral is taken on a bond, the collateral will be returned when the case is completed by the defendant. If the defendant fails to appear at his/her required court appearances, the collateral will be used to pay the State.
*Cash Bond- A Cash bond is when the court requires the accused to pay the entire amount in cash or money order to the court in full. The purpose of this is to secure his or her return to court on an appointed date and thereafter until the case is concluded. If the defendant shows up to all of their appointed court dates, the cash is returned to them. If they fail to appear, the cash is forfeited to the court.
