A Bail Bond is one method to obtain the release of a defendant awaiting trial upon criminal charges from the custody of law enforcement officials. This is on a condition to lodge a sum of money or other form to guarantee their appearances in court. In other words, it represents an agreement to appear in court on a scheduled date.


Anybody charged with a criminal offense shall be admitted to bail as a  matter of right. However, this shall come with sufficient sureties according to the law before the court passes its judgment on an offense not punishable by death or life imprisonment. This is signed by the defendant or a surety to pay a sum of money or other forms to guarantee their appearance in court.


The minimum bail amount may vary because the presiding judge of each jurisdiction sets the amount of bail for each case.
