- Help Rodney locate the defendant if needed.
- Being a co-signer is an important responsibility. Please make sure you understand what you are agreeing to.
A defendant is responsible for the following:
- Upon being released, the defendant will need to immediately report to Rodney and complete the necessary paperwork.
- They must also immediately report to Rodney any changes to their phone number, address, employer, etc…. As well as keep Rodney updated on court dates, and results. Communication is VERY important.
- Find an attorney to represent them during the court process. They may apply to have a court appointed attorney, but there is no guarantee that it will be approved. There are many good private attorneys. We highly recommend talking to several to find one that the defendant feels comfortable with. Ask about payment plans and their experience with your type of charges.

Yes, the payment may be made by anyone, even the defendant themselves.

No, the 10% premium is non-refundable. However, if we are unable to post the bond, we will issue a refund.
