When a bail bondman writes a bail bond for a defendant, the bondsman then takes on liability of the full bail amount which becomes due if the defendant fails to appear for the court date. So before agreeing to assume the risk of posting bail, the bail bondman requires collateral or written guaranties by credit worthy friends or relatives of the defendant. This precaution is necessary due to the fact that the bail bondsman takes on the liability of the full bail amount which becomes due if the defendant fails to appear in court. The collateral acts as security to ensure repayment for any losses the bail bondsman might incur.
If a defendant has failed to show up for court in the past or shows other signs which make the bondsman feel like the risk is too great, the bondsman can refuse to provide bail bond services. However, any defendant without a prior criminal record who has held a job for a fairly long amount of time is usually considered to be an acceptable risk. Other factors may also help the defendant be seen as an acceptable risk by the bondsman such as roots in the community, family, children in school, a spouse with a steady job, etc.
