Your Responsibilities After Posting Bail
If you post bail for a loved one using a bail bond you become known as the indemnitor. This means you are responsible for the actions of the defendant while they are out on bail. Ultimately it is up to you to make sure that they appear at each of their scheduled court dates. If the defendant misses a day in court the indemnitor may become responsible for paying the full bail amount and the defendant could be returned to jail. Any costs incurred during the search for a missing or runaway defendant may also be passed onto the indemnitor if a private bounty hunter is hired by the bail bond agency. This is why you should only post bail for loved ones that you know and trust. The team at Michelle's American Eagle would be happy to help you decide if posting bail is the right option for your friend or relative.
How Much Does a Bail Bond Cost?
The full bail amount is set by the court, which can range from $50 to a million dollars or more. The bond premium is the percentage of that amount that is owed as payment to the bail agency for posting bail using a bail bond. This number is generally around 10 percent of the total bail amount, but may vary slightly on a case by case basis. At Michelle's American Eagle we don't require collateral for bail bonds and we are happy to discuss flexible payment plans. Once we post the bond for you it can take 1 to 12 hours or more for the defendant to be released depending upon the jail they are at and the size of its current roster.
