When you do something that you were specifically told not to do when you were granted bail, it’s considered a bail bond violation.
Examples of a bail bond violation include:
The immediate consequence of a bail bond violation is that you’ll be arrested. It’s unlikely that bail will be granted a second time which means you’ll have to stay in jail until your case is resolved. If the case goes to trial you could be in jail for several months.
It’s unlikely that your problems will end after you’re arrested. Depending on the exact violation, you could be facing additional charges.
These can include things like:
If you used collateral, such as your house or car, to secure the bail bond, you’ll likely forfeit that item.
The good news is that as long as you’re on your best behavior and appear at all your court dates, avoiding bail violations is relatively easy. If you’re confused about the terms of your bail, contact your lawyer or bail bond agent, and they’ll happily outline what you are and aren’t allowed to do.
