Many of you have already heard about bounty hunters. But most also ask what they really are? Are these actors, undercover police or detectives? All of these are untrue about bounty hunters.
A bounty hunter are hired by bail bondman and in other states in USA. They are assets in looking for people who have “jumped bail”. To make it more clear, you have to learn about how the justice system works.
Once a person gets caught for a crime, he would be arraigned and a bail will be set for his temporary release until his court date. Sometimes, these people do not have sufficient money to post the bail. So they would go to bail bonds companies in order to loan for the amount needed.
These bail bonds companies in las vegas will then put up the bail for the release of the accused. In return, they are charging anything from 10-15 per cent of the premium as their fees. These amount minus the 10-15 per cent fee, will be returned to the bonds company after the accused shows up in his court date.
Many of the companies’ clients think that they can escape the justice system and the bail bonds company. The bounty hunters are then assigned by these companies to go after those that jumped bail. In return, they are paid up to 50 per cent of the bail amount as the companies would rather loose half of the money than the whole amount.
The bail bonds companies are a great help especially for people that need help in shelling out for their bails. Yet, those that tries to hide from them will be dealing with these bounty hunters that will surely be able to find you no matter where you hide.
