    Bail Bond

    How does one relieve themselves of the responsibility of a bail bond procurred after a third party's (girlfriend) arrest ? The understanding at the time was that after the defendant made their court appearances, the vehicle title, used as collateral for the balance of the amount, would be returned. The defendant appeared in court and was sentenced to an intensive probation program for 6 mos. I now have learned the bond is to remain in effect until the defendants completion of this probation. Recently the defendant has permanently severed all relations with me. I have no knowledge of or sway over her current lifestyle. I know nothing of the defendant's whereabouts. I should add that I presently have a financial hardship due to recent cancer surgery, which may require me to sell the titled vehicle to meet my obligations. In closing, I feel that being an interested party, notice should have been given to me regarding the status of the bond prior to sentencing of this defendant.

    Are you the sole owner of the vehicle? If so, did you sign the paperwork to allow your girlfriend to use your vehicle for bail?
