You were arrested for a crime and are placed in jail to await your hearing. You call up the bail bond company and make arrangements for a bond. A few months go by and the charges against you are dismissed. Because of this, you don’t feel like you need to pay the rest of the amount owed to the bondsman. You’re innocent, after all. What can happen next?
It’s sad but this can happen from time to time. Many believe that if the charges are dropped, or are found not guilty of the crime, then that’s the end of the whole situation. But that simply is not the case.
Just like a credit card or a bank loan, you are required to pay your bail bondsman the amount agreed upon, no matter what happens with your case. You will not get your money back for the bond. And if you don’t pay your bills, you will have a lawsuit against you. No, the bail bondsman cannot put you back in jail for not paying the bond. However, the company can sue you to get the money returned.
But what happens if your case is still pending and you’re not paying the bill? What happens then? Still, the bail bond company cannot put you in jail. However, there is a chance that the bondsman will file a motion to revoke the bond, resulting in your arrest and return to jail for the original charge.
