When a defendant is released from jail on El Centro bail bonds, the most important thing they need to do is to go to court as often as needed to finish their case.
If a defendant jumps bail and tries to flee, the bondsman (and the bail bonds cosigner) will be responsible for paying the defendant’s full bail amount to the court as a penalty. If the court issues a forfeiture demand to the bondsman, the bondsman will have 30 days to pay. From there, the bail bonds company will begin proceedings to recover that money from the bail bonds cosigner.
If a defendant skips court and they show no signs of wanting to get back on the calendar, or if a bondsman receives notice that the defendant is about to flee, they are able to surrender the defendant back into custody.
Defendants who are in jail on a bail bonds surrender generally have a very difficult time in hiring a new bondsman, because they are already seen as being a flight risk.
