Legal Question

Asked on: 6/10/13, 12:30 pm

I bonded my brother-in-law out of jail here in Alabama on a 7500.00 dollar bond. His mother has paid about 300.00 dollars on this bond. Since then, he has went to court on other charges and received a sentence of 25 years. What I need to know is, can I be held liable for the rest of the fee even though he is incarcerated. I had even tried to take my name off the bond and the bonding company said I could not do this.

The bonding company did what you asked them to and is entitled to the agreed fee. It's not their fault your brother has had more charges filed against him.
