A bail bond is a piece of paper that is posted at the jail by an expert Ventura bail bondsman. This piece of paper promises that if a defendant is released pending their court date they will return to have their case resolved.
All Ventura bail bonds agents are required to be licensed by the California Department of Insurance so you can also think of a bail bond as a type of insurance policy. Instead of insuring an item against damage it insures a person will perform a certain action- namely, going to court.
Sometimes people think that if a defendant makes all their required legal appearances, their case is dismissed or they get off with a slap on the wrist, the premium they paid to the bail bonds company will be refunded. This is not true.
In this case you can also think of that premium in a similar way to the premium you pay to your auto insurance company. If your car has collision coverage and you don’t get in an accident, that money is not refunded to you. The same is true if you don’t receive any speeding tickets or moving violations. The premium you pay to your insurance agent is a fee, it is not something you get back. This is also the case when it comes to the premium you pay to a Ventura bail bondsman.
