Believe it or not, the defendant in jail is not the only person who benefits from posting bail with a bail bond.
• Immediate family – They get to have their loved one back home. No more jail visits and empty seats at the dinner table.
• Employers – The defendant can return to work and earning an income again.
• Friends – The whole gang can reunite without worrying that the defendant is going to miss out on barbecues, or other fun outings.
• Co-signers – Relationships between these people and the defendant can strengthen. The defendant knows these people are really banking on them to turn their life around and take this matter seriously. The defendant does not want to let them down, especially knowing they are spending money and pledging collateral in their name.
