If the defendant does not show up to all hearings, the entire amount of their bail will be due. Property Bonds If the defendant is accused of a crime that is a high misdemeanor or a felony, has a couple of failure-to-appears on a rap sheet, and/or has substantial financial reserves, the commissioner may impose a higher bail amount than the accused can afford. There are two options: either a property bond or a commercial cash surety bond. If the accused has property they can put up as collateral, they may enter into a property bond. This agreement authorizes the court to enforce a lien, foreclose, or collect the property if the defendant doesn’t show up to all hearings of the court. At the conclusion of the case, the lien is released.
