Bail Bond

Money given by a third party to a court to ensure that the defendant appears at his/her court date. The third party (called a bail bond agent) charges a fee in exchange for placing the bail bond, which is returned to the agent if the defendant appears as ordered. Bail bonds are most common in the United States, where bails are higher than in other countries.
