Bail bonding question

My son was arrested as a passenger in a car driven by one of his friends. Upon conducting a search of the vehicle, the police found a bag of marijuana in the center console and since neither of them would say who it was for, both were booked. Bail was set at 30K. I called a bail bondsmen and agreed with him to pay 1500.00 up front and have my son pay 150 a month for 10 months. In the meantime the trial date came and all his charges were dropped when the driver admitted to the judge it belonged to him and my son didn't know it was even in the car. My question is although we still have about 5 months remaining to pay on this thing, are we still obligated to pay since the charges were dropped. What will the bondsman do if we stop? He can't revoke the bond if the charges were dismissed can he? Thanks,

Carey
