FAQ: Bail Defined
A bail bond is a contract. The bond can be thought of as similar to an insurance policy because it serves as a promise that if a defendant is released from custody, they will return to court to have their case resolved. It further promises that if the defendant decides to flee that the bondsman and person who signed the bail bonds contract will take responsibility for paying the defendant’s full bail amount to the court.
