The world of law is an extensive and confusing place, hence why thousands of students drop out of law programs each year. A court case can be a nerve wracking and stressful experience for someone unfamiliar with the law and how to go about a trial, and oftentimes defendants and their families need to rush to research what exactly will happen in a court case. While lawyers will make this process seamless and easy, there are still several pieces of the process of conviction to be aware of. Bail bond is a very common element in the process of hearings and trials. This video makes the concept and order of bail bonds extremely simple and easy to digest.
To begin, someone who is arrested for a serious crime will need to wait in prison for a bail hearing. Once the bail is set, the defendant can pay the fee to be released until their court date, or have a close family member utilize a bail bond company. If they choose the latter, then the bail bondsman posts the bond payment for the defendant, while taking a small cut of the amount for himself. This process helps people without resources to still be out of jail until their court date.
