What is Bail?
Put simply, bail is when a defendant is released in exchange for money. In other words, it’s almost a form of insurance that ensures that the defendant will be in court when he or she is expected to, but released until that time.
What is a Bail Bond?
A bail bond is a form of payment that allows someone who has been arrested for a crime to leave jail until it is time for a trial.
How Do Bail Bonds Work?
A bail bond company will pay a bail amount on behalf of the defendant. In Hawaii, a standard bond is for 10% of the total bail amount.
