WHAT HAPPENS TO THE MONEY YOU USE FOR BAIL
You might be thinking about posting bail for the inmate so he/she can be released from jail to await court dates.
Here is how it works.
Your money will be used as a guarantee that the inmate will appear at all court hearings.
Once the case has reached a conclusion, if the inmate appeared at all court hearings, you can request to have the money returned to you minus any processing fees.
If the inmate does not appear in court, you will lose your money to the court.
Put your receipt for payment in a safe place for the duration of the case because it will speed the process of getting your money returned.
Take the receipt to court when the time comes and make the request.
You can also offer to have the money applied to the inmate’s fines, court costs and assessments.
