Bail Bonds Glossary: FAILURE TO
APPEAR: What happens when the defendant does not make it to court on the date and
time ordered by the court. Once the court determines that there is a failure
to appear by the defendant, they must forfeit the bail.
BAIL FORFEITURE: When the court orders the bail forfeited, the bail agent has a certain
amount of time to produce the defendant back in court, or prove that he
can't because the defendant is dead or in jail somewhere else. In Colorado
the amount of time allowed for this is 180 days. If the bail agent cannot
have the forfeiture set aside (cancelled) within this time, they then have
to pay the full amount of the bond to the court.
EXONERATION: When the court declares the bond exonerated, the bondsman is released from
his guarantee that the defendant will appear in court. The collateral should
be returned to the cosigner at this time if no money is due the bail agent.
Exonerations usually happen when the case is decided (defendant found guilty
or not guilty), but can be done anytime the judge feels the bail bond is no
longer necessary to assure the appearance by the defendant in court.
COLLATERAL: Something of value either pledged as security or turned over to
the bail agent to hold onto until the bond is exonerated. This could be a
lien on a piece of real estate, a car, jewelry, cash, or just about anything
else of value. Most reputable bail agents no longer accept firstborn
children as collateral. COSIGNER(S): A person or people who sign a contract with the bondsman
stating they will pay any expenses the bondsman incurs returning the
defendant to court if the defendant fails to appear. The cosigners are also
responsible for payment of the bond premium.
PREMIUM: The fee paid to the bail agent for posting the bail bond and assuming
responsibility for the defendant appearing in court. This money is earned in
full once the defendant is released on the bail bond. This amount usually is
ten percent of the face value of the bail bond.
SURRENDER: Returning somebody to the custody of the court (jail) in order to get the
bond exonerated. The bondsman can surrender anybody they have out on bond at
any time they want. This usually only happens if the defendant has failed to
appear. If the bail agent believes somebody is going to skip bond, they can
surrender them before they fail to appear. If the court decides the bail
agent did not have reason to surrender the defendant, they can order the
BAIL RECOVERY AGENT (BOUNTY HUNTER): A person of suitable age and discretion authorized by the bail agent in
writing to arrest and surrender the defendant. These, overwhelmingly, are
people with either police background and/or training. Private investigators,
retired sheriffs, retired FBI agents and other trained professionals do this
sort of work. The threat of civil litigation has
taken the wild west attitude out of bail recovery work.
