What Is a DUI Bond?
A DUI bond is one that is set when a person is arrested for driving or operating a vehicle while they are under the influence of drugs or alcohol. The bond is written and the amount required posted to obtain the defendant's release from police custody. Once the defendant is released they must appear at all scheduled court dates and perform any tasks ordered by the judge. When everything has been completed and the defendant has been sentenced, the bail funds are released back to the co-signer minus court costs and fees.
If they defendant fails to comply with the bond arrangements, their bail money will be forfeited and it will be up to a Godfathers Bail Bondsman to apprehend them and return them to jail.
