What is a Personal Bond?

This is the free way to get released from jail. It is what is known as a personal recognizance bond. Depending on your charge and criminal history, and if you are a low flight risk and not a threat to the community, you could qualify for a personal bond. This means that as long as you come back to all of your court dates, you do not have to pay your bail bond.
