How Bail Bonds Work
Ever wondered how bail bonds work? If you have been accused of a crime and need bail money, here is how the bail bonds process works. First, a bail bond is money given to a court by an arrested person that ensures the court they will appear at their scheduled court hearing.
Appearing In Court
If a defendant shows up in court on their scheduled court date, the bail bond money will be refunded. However, if a defendant does not appear at their scheduled court hearing, the court keeps the bail money and a warrant for the person’s arrest is issued.
How The Amount Of Bail Is Determined
Within approximately 48 hours after arrest, a bail bond hearing happens. During this hearing a judge will determine the amount of the bail based upon a number of circumstances and the nature of the alleged crime committed. The judge will also determine the amount by the risk that the defendant will not appear in court on the scheduled date. Typically, the court system has a standard bail bond amount pertaining to a specific crime. However, the judge does not have to go by the standards for bail bonds amount.
Once the judge has set a specific bail bonds amount, paying the amount is the next step in the bail bonds process.
Four Ways To Pay
There are four different ways to pay for bail bonds.
  • Cash
  • Secured bail bonds
  • Unsecured bail bonds
  • Signature or own recognizance (OR)
When a bail cannot be paid in full, a bail bonds service will provide the court up front with the full amount if the defendant can pay 10% of full bail amount.
How Bail Bonds Services Work
If a defendant chooses to use a bail bonds service, 10% of the full bail amount must be paid up front for the bail bonds service to pay the court. The bail bonds service posts bail in full, and the client can get out of jail. The service is taking a risk on the defendant, promising the court the defendant will appear in court on scheduled court date. However, this is not always the case. The bail bonds service requires an indemnitor to guarantee that the full amount of bail will be paid if the defendant does not appear in court.
In the event that the defendant does not appear in court, the initial 10% of bail will go to the bail bonds service, and the court will issue a warrant for the defendant’s arrest. The defendant will also be required by the courts to pay the full amount of bail, in addition to the already 10% paid to the bail bonds service.
If the defendant does appear in court, the bail money will be refunded in full to defendant or bail bond service after the case is complete.

The decision by FBI Director James Comey to reopen the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email server and her mishandling of classified material came after he could no longer resist mounting pressure by his FBI agents described as “mutinous.”
In an article for Britain’s Daily Mail, bestselling author Ed Klein reports some of Comey’s top deputies were in on the mutiny, according to a source close to the director.
 “The atmosphere at the FBI has been extremely toxic ever since Jim announced last July that he wouldn’t recommend an indictment against Hillary,” said the source, who Klein says has known Comey for nearly 20 years and spends family outings together.
“Some people, including department heads, stopped talking to Jim, and even ignored his greetings when they passed him in the hall,” said the source. “They felt that he betrayed them and brought disgrace on the bureau by letting Hillary off with a slap on the wrist.”
The source says Comey agonized over the issue for months and even talked about it with his wife, Patrice.

Comey told Patrice the stack of resignation letters from livid agents was making him depressed, as they reminded him that morale at the bureau had hit rock bottom.

“He’s been ignoring the resignation letters in the hope that he could find a way of remedying the situation,'” said the source, according to Klein.
 “When new emails that appeared to be related to Hillary’s personal email server turned up in a computer used by [her close aide] Huma Abedin and [Abedin’s disgraced husband,] Anthony Weiner, Comey jumped at the excuse to reopen the investigation.
“The people he trusts the most have been the angriest at him. And that includes his wife, Pat. She kept urging him to admit that he had been wrong when he refused to press charges against the former secretary of state.”
 “He talks about the damage that he’s done to himself and the institution [of the FBI], and how he’s been shunned by the men and women who he admires and work for him. It’s taken a tremendous toll on him. It shattered his ego. He looks like he’s aged 10 years in the past four months.”
Klein says Comey’s decision to reopen the case “was more than an effort to heal the wound he inflicted on the FBI.”
“He was also worried that after the presidential election, Republicans in Congress would mount a probe of how he had granted Hillary political favoritism,” Klein wrote.
The new look at Hillary’s emails, coming just 11 days before Election Day, is said to have shocked U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch and prosecutors at the Justice Department.
“Jim told me that Lynch and Obama are furious with him,” the source said. Klein notes that President Obama indicated his choice of Comey as FBI director was “my worst mistake as president.”
“Lynch and Obama haven’t contacted Jim directly,” said the source, “but they’ve made it crystal clear through third parties that they disapprove of his effort to save face.” run and tell that!

Client asked: My wife was arrested earlier today after she and I got into a shouting match.  Nothing happened, we were just yelling, but the police came and told me they were arresting her for domestic violence.  How do domestic violence bail bonds work? Will she need to see a judge before I can get her out of jail?

Domestic violence bail bonds work just like other types of bail bonds.  The bondsman will need someone to cosign and that cosigner will need to agree to two things.  One, that they’ll make sure the defendant goes to court as many times as they need to finish their case.  Two, that they agree to pay the bondsman’s fee, whether that be in full or through a bail bonds payment plan.
Although some counties require domestic violence defendants be seen by a magistrate before they can bond out, these counties are the exception to the rule. Most defendants are able to post domestic violence bail bonds as soon as they’ve completed the booking process.

Bail Bonds Reform: Illinois Judge Writes a Thorough and Thoughtful Analysis of Movement

For some time, the Pretrial Justice Institute has spent hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of taxpayer dollars and grants trying to discredit and eliminate the commercial bail industry. Their strategy has been pretty simple. 
Travel the country and educate judges and legislators on the evils of commercial bail. As part of this education process they cite Supreme Court decisions, research findings, and public opinion as all supporting their position. Unfortunately, what they are saying isn’t lining up with what they are selling…and someone on the bench finally stood up and took notice. Recently, a Chief Justice out of Illinois, decided to question PJI’s canned propaganda and do some research of his own. The results…one of the most well thought out arguments against the Bail Reform Movement I have ever read. Not only does he call out their baseless claims and statistics but also questions their true motivations. Check out the two links below.  The first is a notice from the American Bail Coalition regarding the statement and the second link is to read the full statement from the Judge. Trust me when I say it will be worth it.
