If you have been charged with a criminal offense, in most cases the court will require that you post bail before the judge will release you from jail, while you are awaiting trial.
Simply put, a bail bond is a contract between a state licensed bail agent and the signer or cosigners. The purpose of bail is to provide the court a level of assurance/guarantee you will appear in court on the trial date.
While the Constitution of the United States and North Carolina mandates your access to bail must be reasonable, the judge considers several parameters when deciding whether to grant bail and the amount of bail. They include the following:
- The nature of the criminal offence
- Your personal history
- Prior warrants, if any
- The level of flight risk you pose
In most cases, an interview is conducted by a bail agent, in order to approve NC bail bonds. Since most people do not have the cash on hand to pay their bail, the law allows for people accused of crimes to enter into a contract with a bail bondsman, such as “Kahuna Bail Bonds” who posts the bail for you in exchange for a fee, which is typically 10 percent of the bail cost.
When you enter into this agreement, you commit to appearing at court on the day of your trial. In the event, you fail to appear at court on your trial date, the bail bondsman loses the money posted for your release from jail. This is referred to as skipping bail. In this situation, the bail bondsman calls upon bail enforcement agents, also known as bounty hunters, to find you and bring you to court.
