The bail agents from All American Bail Bonds in Santa Clarita are informing the community about what can be expected to happen if a person who was recently arrested “skips bail” and fails to appear in court.
After someone is arrested on suspicion of a crime and then released on bail after obtaining a surety bond through a bail bonding company like All American Bail Bonds in Santa Clarita, the defendant is guaranteeing both the company and the courts that they will appear at all of their court dates.
If they fail to appear, or “skip bail,” then their bail is automatically forfeited by the court, and a warrant will be issued for the person’s arrest.
The bail bonding company that issued the bond, like All American Bail Bonds in Santa Clarita, has a vested financial interest in finding the defendant and bringing them back to custody.
The reason for this is because the bail bonding company will be required to pay the court the full bail amount if the defendant is not located within 180 days from the missed court appearance.
In this case, the bail bonding company would seek full reimbursement from the person who signed the bail contract, known as the indemnitor. The indemnitor could be the defendant themselves or a friend or family member.
Additionally, if collateral such as a house, business, vehicle, etc. was taken as part of the bail contract, it will likely be lost to repay the bail bonding company in full.
Because of this, All American Bail Bonds in Santa Clarita recommends anyone considering signing a bail contract for a loved one as the indemnitor carefully evaluate the chances of the person skipping bail.
The experienced and knowledgeable bail agents at All American Bail Bonds in Santa Clarita are available 24/7 to answer questions, explain the process and offer assistance to the public.
