What Happens If You Bail Someone Out & They Go Back To Jail?


What Happens If You Bail Someone Out & They Go Back To Jail?

If you bailed someone out of jail and they have to go back to jail for another arrest, then they will be required to pay another bond fee.

If you used a bail bonds company on the first loan and the person you bonded out gets arrested again and needs another bond, your first bond does not get refunded to you. The 10% you put down originally goes to the bondsman, and if there is a second arrest, you will need to pay a second bond if the court requires it.

Can Bail Money Be Refunded?

Bail bond money is refundable so long as you show up in court for your hearing. The court may take a small fee of about 3% of your refund, depending on the state. If you paid a bail bonds service, then you do not get a refund of the 10% service fee that the bail bonds company charges. Read more about how bail money and refunds work.

Well in Massachusetts you can’t revoke the bail unless you bring the person you bailed out with you. So technically you would have to turn yourself in. They don’t send the cops out to pick you up or anything like that, not here anyway. And I’m pretty sure no one would be willing to turn themselves in, so if you live here, he can go tell them he wants it revoked every single day, it won’t matter unless he has you with him.

Say I put my name and collateral on a bail bond and the person who gets bonded out misses his court dates and the bonding agency writes me asking if I know the whereabouts of the the bonded, which I did and informed the agency. Resulting in him getting arrested and going back to jail. Resulting in him going to Federal prison for a long long time. What happens to the original bond I signed?

I bonded my boyfriend now and he was out three days but re-arrested and has been sitting in jail almost a month why is the bonds company of his first charge still charging me for his bond if he’s not even out

If he got re-arrested for a different charge, then there might be another bail amount that needs to be paid. You can contact a local bondsman and have them look it up for you. Sometimes, if the court feels like the person is too risky, they will hold him regardless of a previous bond for a second arrest. If you paid an original bond fee to a bondsman at 10% of the total bond amount, then that fee would be non-refundable because it is a service fee for the bondsman taking the risk of putting up the full amount on your behalf to the court. If you paid the court the full bond amount, then when he makes his court date, you should get the full amount back, minus some small court costs.
