Can A Bondsman Revoke A Bail Bond?
No. Your bond can only be revoked by a judge.
Why would a judge revoke a bail bond?
A judge may revoke a bail bond if the judge determines that you are…
- At risk of failing to appear for court
- Likely to cause more trouble out of jail than in jail
- Gets arrested while out on bail
If you do get arrested again while you are already out on a bond, it is possible the bondsman can bail you out a second time.
Do I get my bail bond money back if my bail bond is revoked?
No, the money is forfeited. You do not get it back.
What is the procedure for bailing somebody out of jail in Kansas?
Most of the time, a local Kansas bail bond company will be contacted by telephone to initiate the bail bonding procedure. Our Kansas bail bonding company will ask for information in order to determine the level of risk involved in offering a bail bond and will begin the bail bond approval process. At the time the bail bond has been approved, our new customer will need to sign some bail bond documents such as a bail bonding application, an Indemnity Agreement, and will receive a receipt. Once the bail bonding paperwork has been finalized and the bail premium payment has been provided to our Kansas bail bond company, our licensed Kansas bondsman will “post” bail at the jail.
