Description

Bail bondsman; surrender of principal; deposit. Requires a bail bondsman on a bond in a recognizance who surrenders his principal for any reason other than a summons to show cause issued by the court for which the defendant is to appear to deposit with the clerk or magistrate the greater of 10 percent of the amount of the bond or $50 at the time of the application for a capias. The bill allows the bondsman to petition the court within 15 days to show cause as to why the bondsman is entitled to the amount deposited. If the court finds that there was sufficient cause to surrender the principal, the court shall return the deposited funds to the bondsman. If the court finds that surrender of the principal was unreasonable, the court shall return the deposited funds to the principal. Amends § 19.2-149, of the Code of Virginia. Read the Bill »
