What is a bond?

A judge can grant a bond to a Defendant in order to allow the Defendant to be released from jail prior to trial after posting security meant to ensure that the individual will return to court.  In the event that the Defendant does not appear in court, the judge can forfeit the bond and issue a bench warrant for such individual’s arrest.  The bond can also include conditions (such as an order to stay away from an alleged victim) and the judge can revoke the bond if he or she believes the Defendant has violated any of the bond’s conditions.
