WHAT DOES A BAIL AGENT DO?

  • It is the bail agents’ job to ensure the defendant is in court each time he is called to do so, and to return from term-to-term and day-to-day.
  • The commercial bail system in this country is the best form of ensuring criminal defendants are returned to court and ensuring the victims of crime their rights to justice. It is a system paid for by the perpetuators of crime, not by the taxpaying victim and is fair and equitable in guaranteeing an accused their Eighth Amendment right to bail.
