Other Questions About Bail Bonds

A judge sets the bail amount. In order to get released from jail until court date or trial, defendant must pay the bail amount. Unless bail is posted (paid), the defendant must remain in jail until their appointed court date. If defendant cannot afford to pay bail, a bail bondsman can post the bail for the defendant. This is called a bail bond. The bondsman charges a fee for this service. Once the defendant appears before the court, the bail bond is dissolved and bondsman keeps thier fee regardless of trial outcome.
No, bail and bond are not the same thing. Bail is the court-ordered amount of money that a defendant must pay in order to be released from jail while awaiting trial. A bond is legal surety between the posting party (bondsman) and the court. The bondsman can post this bond to the court on the defendant's behalf. The bond (called a "bail bond") assures the court that the defendant will show up for court on the assigned trial date. If defendant fails to appear or violates the conditions of the release, he/she will be returned to jail and the court will demand that bail be paid in full. Bondsman will use the defendant's assigned collateral to pay the remaining bail amount.
The court sets the actual bail amount. However, if the defendant cannot afford to pay bail, they can hire a bail bondsman (bail agent) for a "bail bond." The bail bond will cost a small percentage of the bail amount. The defendant is responsible for paying this fee to the bail bondsman who then post the bail bond to the court for the release of the defendant until trial. Dauthier's Bail Agents offer the lowest bail bonds fees in Livingston parish and offer flexible payment options.
When bail is set, you have the opportunity to pay the bail in full to the court yourself. If do pay the full bail amount directly to the court, you will get a refund from the court regradless of the trial outcome. If you hire a bail bondsman (bail agent) to post bail for you, you will pay this bondsman a fee for this service. This bail bonds fee is NOT refunded after trial - regardless of trial outcome.
