What is a bail bond?

bail bond / bāl'  bŏnd`/- (noun) A bond or obligation given by a prisoner and his surety, to insure the prisoner's appearance.

As United States citizens, we have an 8th Amendment right to bail. It would also be virtually impossible to keep each person accused of a crime behind bars until they are brought to trial. A bail bond or appearance bond is used to guarantee the appearance of a person charged with a crime to all of their court dates. It allows the accused to remain somewhat free in order to continue to support their family, keep their job and work to defend their case. Bail Bonds have been used for hundreds of years, dating back to the times of Elizabethan England, as the most effective method to ensure the appearance of a criminal defendant in court.
