Full Answer

Although a person does not pay money or obtain assistance from a bondsman, typically a dollar amount is associated with a PR bond. A judicial officer permits a person to sign a PR bond at a certain dollar amount in exchange for release. If the individual fails to appear at future judicial proceedings in the case, the bond is revoked, and the defendant must pay the dollar amount associated with that PR bond.
