Facts and Knowledge about Bail Bonds
You take full responsibility for the defendant to show up in court when you bail him or her out of jail. Most bail problems and issues are easily resolved and rarely escalated beyond a simple phone call. That said, if you are considering bailing someone out, and you have reason to believe they may not show up for court or may leave the area, please do not bail them out. You are not criminally liable, but you may be civilly liable.
It is important that you understand the entire bail bond process and your responsibility as a mediator before you agree to guarantee a bond for someone.
