DUI - Posting Bond
What is Bail?Bail is defined as cash or bond to ensure a prisoner will return to court. If bail is allowed, the release of the driver is discharged from the custody of the DUI court with the expectation that they will reappear when required for their criminal court proceedings.
If a driver has been arrested for drunk driving in some cases they may post bail to be released. Posting bail allows a friend or relative to contract with a bail bondsman to post an amount of money to the court which guarantees the defendant will reappear in court at an appointed time. If the drunk driver fails to appear in court the co-signor on the bail agrees to reimburse the bail bondsman the full amount of the bail.
