Making bail can be an expensive proposition. This is why many people who have been arrested need the assistance of a licensed bail bondsman. Bail is set by the courts as an incentive for a defendant to return to stand trial. Often, a defendant’s bail amount is set higher than what many people can readily afford. However, a bail bond allows the defendant to pay a small percentage of the total bail amount plus fees while your bail bondsman covers the total amount of the bail.
If a defendant skips bail and does not return to court, he or she will be considered a fugitive and a warrant will be issued for their arrest.

Felony Bail Bonds
Making Felony Bail
There are two primary categories of crimes in the state of California – misdemeanors and felonies. The main difference between these two types of offenses is the manner in which they are punished by the state. For instance, misdemeanor crimes are considered to be less dangerous and are therefore punished less harshly than felony infractions. One of the major differences in the punishments between the two crime classifications is the amount of jail time one serves after a conviction as well as where that jail time is served.
Felony convictions result in prison sentences of no less than one year in a state prison where misdemeanor convictions can be punished by no more than one year in a local jail. However, many misdemeanor offenses can be punished with only fines and community service.
The principle that felonies are treated more harshly than misdemeanors is also extended to a defendant’s eligibility for bail. In most cases, bail is granted to a defendant. However, how much a defendant will have to pay to make bail is dependent upon the crime the defendant stands accused of committing, the defendant’s criminal history, and the probability that the defendant appears in court for his or her trial.
Once the court sets your bail, you will have the opportunity to make bail and be released from the custody of local law enforcement officials. After your release, you will be required to attend all scheduled court hearings until the conclusion of your trial. Should a defendant fail to appear in court at the previously scheduled date and time of every hearing, the defendant is considered a fugitive and a warrant is issued for their arrest.
How Bail Works
How Do Bail Bonds Work?
Making bail is a simple proposition. After an arrest, the first step towards making bail is to contact one of our licensed bail agents. Once you contact us, we can complete your bail bonds application. If you are approved for a bail bond, our bail agents will post your bail immediately so that you spend as little time behind bars as possible. After an arrest, defendants are required to be present for all scheduled court hearings. If a defendant does not show up for their trial, they are considered a fugitive and a warrant is issued for their arrest. Also, the defendant will be charged with a new crime, failure to appear, in addition to their original crime.
Bail operates on one simple premise – innocent until proven guilty. Because defendants are presumed to be innocent until the conclusion of their criminal trials; they must be released from the custody of local law enforcement. The defendant is released on the condition that he or she appears in court to stand trial. To help ensure that the defendant appears at his or her trial, courts require the defendant to make a payment to the court known as bail.
