ABC Blocks

A professional agent for an insurance company who specializes in providing bail bonds for people charged with crimes and awaiting trial in order to have them released. the offices of a bail bondsman (or woman) are usually found close to the local courthouse and jail, his/her advertising is found in the yellow pages, and some make “house calls” to the jail or hand out cards in court. bail bondsmen usually charge the suspect a fee of 10 percent of the amount of the bond. if a bail bondsman has reason to believe a person he bailed out is about to flee, he may revoke the bond and surrender his client to jail.
