Bail and Bondsman
Bail enables a charged individual to remain free from jail while the trial still hasn’t started as long as he guarantees his appearance in court for his trial. The court may also ask for a pledge of money or property to serve as additional guarantee. If the individual misses his court date, then he loses the money/property.
If a defendant cannot post bail because of financial constraints, he can secure his release through a bondsman. If the accused fails to appear as promised, the court will hold the bondsman liable for the whole bail amount. In return for his service, the bondsman will charge 10% of the bail amount which cannot be refunded.

Mr. Barnett with Tennessee Bonding was professional kind and timely in helping us get our nephew released on bond at a very late hour of the night.. He walked us through the process and gave us some good advice to boot that helped my nephew better navigate his legal circumstances. If you need the assistance of a bondsman, call Mr. Barnett with Tennessee Bonding. You'll be glad you did.
Best ppl ever .. Take wonderful care of everyone and never judge a book by its cover
DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME. The only company that actually answered the phone at 1am however they blatantly lied. The lady who answered the phone took all my information, said she would call the jail to confirm and call me right back. This being my first time needing to bail someone out of jail I took her for what she said. After waiting over an hour and calling her back with no response I spoke with the jail receptionist who advised she never called the jail to confirm anything and that meant she wasn't interested in being the bondsmen. Deplorable, dishonest filth running this company.
