Warrant Bail Bonds
What is a Warrant Bail Bond?
A Warrant Bail Bond, also referred as a “Warrant Bond” or “Bench Warrant Bond,” is a type of bail bond used when a defendant fails to appear in court as required.
How Do Warrant Bail Bonds Work in Ohio?
- Initial Arrest and Bail: After being arrested, a person may choose to post bail in order to be freed from custody until their court date. Bail is a financial guarantee that the defendant will appear in court as planned.
- Court Appearance: The defendant is required to appear in court on a designated date and time. A key step in the judicial process, skipping this appearance might have major repercussions.
- Failure to Appear: The judge may issue a bench warrant if the defendant fails to appear for their court appearance. A bench warrant is an order that gives law enforcement the go-ahead to detain the subject and transport them to court.
- Warrant Bail Bond: The defendant or someone acting on their behalf (such as a bail bondsman) may post a warrant bail bond to resolve the matter and prevent arrest. This bond acts as a pledge that the defendant will show up in court at a later date and effectively stands in for them.
- Court Appearance: Once the warrant bail bond is posted, the defendant is normally freed from detention. The defendant must show up in court on the new day to present their case.
- Bond Forfeiture: If the defendant fails to appear in court again, the court may forfeit the bail bond. A new arrest warrant might be issued and the cash or property used to secure the bond could be forfeited to the court.
