This is a promise made by the accused to the court that he/she will attend all of the required judicial proceedings and will not engage in further illegal activity or other prohibited conduct as set by the court. Typically, a monetary amount is set by the court but is not paid by the defendant unless it is forfeited by the court; this is denominated as an unsecured appearance bond.
This type of bail bond is applicable to situations where a third party agrees to be responsible for the debt or obligation of the defendant. In many jurisdictions, this service is provided commercially by a bail bondsman where the agent will receive 10% of the bail amount upfront and will keep that amount, whether the defendant appears in court or not. The court, in many jurisdictions, especially jurisdictions that prohibit bail bondsmen, may demand a certain amount of the total bail (typically 10%) be given to the court, which, unlike with bail bondsmen, is returned if the defendant does not violate the conditions of bail.
Many varied non-monetary conditions and restrictions on liberty can be imposed by a court to ensure that a person released into the community will appear in court and not commit any more crimes. Common examples include:
Mandatory Calls to the Police
One very common feature of any conditional release, whether on bail, bond, or condition, is a court order requiring the defendant to refrain from criminal activity against the alleged crime victim or to stay away from and have no contact with the alleged crime victim. The former is a limited order, the latter a full order. Violation of the order can subject the defendant to automatic forfeiture of bail and further fine or imprisonment.
Cash bail bonds, commonly known as "cash only", is applicable when the defendant must provide the amount of the bail to the court.
Courts often allow defendants to post cash bail or bond, and then impose further conditions, as mentioned above, in order to protect the community or ensure attendance. Bail may be forfeited, and the defendant remanded to jail for failure to appear when required.
