When you are arrested and charged with a crime, posting bail allows you await trial at home, rather than remaining incarcerated. Working with a bail bond agent serving Upper Marlboro can allow for your release at a much lower cost than the total bail amount set.
This video takes a closer look into the job of a bail bondsman. When an individual opts to pay his jail bail via a bond, the bail bond agent will work with a surety company to provide the money for the total amount of the bail. The bail bond acts as a contract between the bail bond agent and the state to secure an individual’s appearance in court. Once the bail bond is posted, the defendant becomes the responsibility of the bail bonds agency, which can pursue and bring him back to jail if he misses a court or legal date.
