Getting bailed out of jail is a privilege, not a requirement. There are certain things you need to do to make sure your bail bond isn’t revoked.
Stay Out of Trouble
The main reason bail gets revoked is because people simply can’t stay out of trouble. While you’re out on bail, you’re not supposed to engage in any type of criminal behavior. Even if you’re not actually doing anything, but are simply hanging out with people who are committing crimes, your bail can be revoked and you’ll go back to jail.
Failing to Make a Court Appearance
When you accept a bail bond, you enter into an agreement with the bonding agency. In exchange for them bailing them out, you agree to make all your court appearances. That means every single court appearance. Too many people assume that a certain court appearance isn’t important and they don’t show up. As soon as the bail bonds agency hears about the failure to appear in court, they revoke the bond.
Failing to Make Payments
If the bail bonding agency agreed to a payment plan to cover the 10% they charged when they bail you out, they expect those payments to be made on time. Failing to do so means you’ve broken the contract, leaving them free to revoke your bail.
Failing to follow the Judge’s Instructions
When the judge set bail, they may have also given you a list of things you aren’t allowed to do while you’re out on bail. This list often includes going to certain places, leaving town, engaging in certain pastimes, and even restricting who you hang out with. If you fail to follow these instructions to the letter, your bail could be revoked.
The good news is that the vast majority of people who are released on a bail bond do an excellent job of following the instructions and never have to worry about being sent back to jail simply because they failed to honor their bail bonds agreement.
