Secured Bail

Secured vs. Unsecured Bail

Once a person is arrested for a crime and booked into jail, he or she will have to stand before a judge who will decide the terms and conditions of that person's bail order. The amount of bail set reflects the severity of the crime, prior convictions and the likelihood that the defendant is a flight risk. Once the bond has been paid, the defendant is released from jail awaiting trial. However, the money or property is forfeited if the defendant fails to return for his or her trial. There are two types of bail: secured and unsecured. The defendant can pay bail, or it can be paid by someone else such as a family member or a bail bondsmen.

Secured bail requires that the defendant or someone one their behalf, comes up with a secured item such as a property deed that is equivalent in value to the amount of bail. If the defendant fails to appear in court, the secured item such as a home is forfeited as payment. In contrast, with an unsecured bail bond, instead of paying cash for a release or coming up with a secured item, the defendant signs a bond stating that their presence is guaranteed in court.

If the defendant fails to appear, then the amount of the bail bond that was determined prior to trial would have to be paid. With an unsecured bond or a surety bond, you sign a document that says you agree to pay a specified amount of money if the defendant breaks the conditions of his or her bond.

The greatest difference between secured bonds and unsecured bonds is the way in which bond is paid. With a secured bond the defendant must offer a tangible piece of property such as a deed to a home, whereas with an unsecured bond, the defendant is required to pay cash but is not required to offer a tangible piece of property.
