  1. 1. Bail Bonds Bail Bonds I have been watching Dog the bounty hunter and I am wondering how the bail bonds work. He is very very wealthy which no doubt is thanks to the show but how do the bail bond work? There must be good money in the business. He picks people up and turns them in and then tells them he will get them out after they talk to the judge. So where is the money? He even hunts other peoples bounties. So. How do they work. From what I can tell First, lets say you are trying to compare apples to oranges in terms of the show "Dog the Bounty Hunter" and "How Bail Bonds Work" they may both be fruit, but they are very different businesses. Beth Chapman is a bail bondsman (and bounty hunter). As a bondsman, she gets people out of jail and thats where your question about How Do Bail Bonds Work is significant. Duane Chapman is a "bounty hunter". Really, they are distinct vocations. Heres how bail bonds work: When someone is arrested, bail is set. In California (and many other states) bail is set on a county-wide basis by judges and set out in a "bail schedule". The bail schedule lists types of criminal charges and appropriate bail. Anyone can post bail in cash at the jail or court. A bail bond, however, is a contract where by an individual (perhaps the defendant, but most often a friend or family member) pays a percentage of the full bail amount to a bondsman (commonly 10%, but this varies by state) in exchange for the promise that the defendant will appear in court. When someone "fails to appear" in court, the bondsman has 6 months to get them back into court or jail. The contract signer and the bondsman will work together to make this happen. When the defendant cannot be located, a "bounty hunter" also known as a fugitive recovery agent, will be utilized to find the defendant (for a fee) and bring them back to jail. This is what you often see on "Dog The Bounty Hunter". The money made is in various places the fee on the bail bond is earned by the bondsman once the defendant is released; its a service fee. Similarly, when a bounty hunter is used, the bondsman pays a fee (less than the full bail amount) to the bounty hunter to bring the defendant back rather than pay the full bail amount to the court.Vegasbail.
