What happens if someone puts up the 15% fee and the defendant’s charges get dropped. Will we get any of our money back?
The quick answer to this question is “no.” When you work with a bail bonds company you’ll need to pay a fee that’s set according to state law. In Nevada that fee is 15%. This money is considered to be earned in full at the time the defendant gets out of jail and it’s not something that will be refunded in part, or in full, regardless as to whether the case is dismissed, the charges are dropped, the District Attorney declines to pursue the case or if the defendant is found not guilty. If you signed up for a bail bonds payment plan you’ll need to continue to make payments until your balance is fully resolved. If you stop making payments your account will be sent to collections and the delinquency will be reported to the three major credit reporting agencies, which will have a negative impact on your credit score.
