What does it mean when a bail bond is exonerated?
A bail bond is exonerated when the legal process/trial has finished. It does not matter whether the defendant is found guilty/innocent or if the case has been dismissed. At this point, the bail bond is discharged.
What is the difference between bail bond amount and premium?
The bail bond amount is the full amount of the bail that is set by the court. The premium is the dollar amount charged by the bail service provider for providing the pre-trial release service. Usually this premium is 10% of the bail amount. For example, if the bail amount is $20,000, the premium charged would be $2,000.
