If the charges against the defendant are dropped or dismissed, and they did not breach any bail conditions, the bail bond will typically be released, and the person who posted the bond will no longer be liable for any payments to the bail bondsman.
However, it is important to understand that in some cases, the bail bondsman may have already incurred expenses related to obtaining the bond, such as fees paid to the court or expenses associated with locating the defendant. These expenses may be non-refundable, and the bail bondsman may be entitled to keep any fees paid to them for their services, even if the charges are dropped.
Additionally, if the defendant was released on bail but failed to meet any of the conditions of their release, such as failing to appear in court or violating the terms of their probation, the bail bond may be forfeited, and the person who posted the bond will be liable for any associated expenses or fees.
In general, the specific terms of the bail bond agreement will dictate what happens to the bond if the charges are dropped or dismissed, and it is important to carefully review the terms of the agreement to understand your rights and obligations.
