When a person is arrested and given a bail amount to pay to be released from jail, they have the option of securing a bail bond. This gives them the opportunity to pay the bail in full if they cannot afford it on their own. By securing a bail bond, however, they do have to agree to the terms of the bail. One of the most important terms is that they must attend all of their hearings. If they do not adhere to the terms of the bond, their bond could be revoked by the bondsman.

If the bond is revoked, the first thing that might happen is that a bench warrant will be issued for the arrested person. This means that if they are stopped by the police for any reason, they will be taken back to jail. They will likely not be able to obtain another Reno NV bail bonds, and in some cases will not receive a second bail amount to secure their release. They'll need to spend the remainder of their time until their hearings are completed (plus any sentencing) in jail. This could mean they will lose their job or not be able to take care of their responsibilities at home.

The next thing that could happen is that the person who secured the bond will need to pay the remaining percentage of the bond or forfeit their collateral, depending on how they paid. If they paid cash, they may have 90% of the bail or more to repay. If they secured the bond using the title for their home or vehicle, they will lose it to the bondsman. They may be able to circumvent this by paying the full bail amount, but in many cases they won't be able to afford to do this.

Being released on a bail bond is a serious matter and shouldn't be taken lightly. If you have been released from jail because someone secured a bond on your behalf, you will want to find out what the terms of the bond are and ensure you follow them carefully.
