Bail is an amount of money based which a judge deems sufficient to guarantee a defendant’s court appearance. Upon the appearance of the defendant on court day, the money is returned; but if the defendant does not appear, the money is forfeited, with that money going to the court. A bail bond is a method by which the defendant can use equity in property or other credit to purchase a bond which ensures that appearance.
