If there was a 50k bond and court only required 10% down, the bondsman paid the 5k and the defendant appeared to all court hearings. The case is now over and the defendant was sent to serve a 12 month sentence. The defendant never paid off the full 5k to the bondsman. Does the bondsman get his money back from the court? Does the defendant need to pay the remaining balance of the 5k? Can the bondsman sue the defendant or co-signor? How does the bond process work?
