The part of the criminal justice process that I was the least familiar with was the bail bond process. I decided to do a little research to get more information about the process in Seminole County. I came across a Seminole County Bail Bondsman website with useful information about the bail bond process in Sanford and the surrounding area. Meeting with a bail bondsman is the often the first step in the long process when someone is accused of a crime. My understanding of the bail bonds process was that you pay 10% and you get out. This is basically true but I have learned that payment plans are also available with some bondsman. Collateral is not always required but if the individual is a flight risk collateral might be required to help protect the bondsman. These fine details are what makes the difference when selecting a bondsman.
