What Is An Assault Bail Bond?
An assault bail bond is similar to a conventional bail bond. The main differences have to do with provisions that are put in place by the judge. The judge may issue a protective order requiring you or the defendant from staying away from the victimized party. The judge may also require the defendant to attend and complete anger management or other forms of counseling during the time they are out on bond. If the defendant fails to comply with the court ordered stipulations, the judge may revoke the bond and put the defendant back in jail until it is time for their scheduled court hearing.
How Is It Different Than A Conventional Bail Bond?
To get an assault bail bond, the defendant must contact a licensed bail bondsman, pay the required state mandated fee (normally 10%) and sign a contract that stipulates the terms of the bail bond agreement. If the bail bond is set according to a bond schedule, it will be considered a conventional bond and the defendant will have to comply with the rules associated with it. If the crime is severe enough to warrant an arraignment in front of a judge, that is when the protective order and other stipulations will be included. The bail bondsman will be advised of the conditions and the defendant must agree to comply with the orders of the court before they are released.
