Once the Bail Bond Is Issued
After the judge sets bail during the bail bond hearing and the bail bond is issued, the defendant will be released from jail. This is referred to as “being released on your own recognizance”. This means that the defendant understands and agrees to the important legal conditions and requirements that must be met in order for the defendant to remain “out on bail” until the court date. If the requirements are not met, such as not showing up for all scheduled court hearings, the bail agent must pay the full amount of the defendant’s bond to the court.
If the defendant violates the conditions of the bail, they will be located and taken back to jail. Please keep in mind, that should this happen, the defendant will lose the fees paid to 1st Stop Bail Bonds along with any collateral that was signed over when the bond was issued.
As long as the defendant adheres to the conditions and requirements in the bail agreement and shows up for all of their court appointments, there will be nothing to worry about regardless of whether the defendant is found guilty or innocent. Once the trial is over, the bond is completed and removed.
