What are the defendant’s responsibilities once they’ve been released?

There are two entities that may have release conditions on a person being bonded out of jail or posting a bond in court. The simplest answer is to show up to court as instructed to do so on every court date and not be late. However the court may impose certain restrictions on a case by case basis such as for the defendant to honor a restraining order, go to drug rehabilitation classes not hang out or associate with certain people or to not leave the county or state. The bail agent may also impose some of these same restrictions as well. It is possible that either the court or the bail bondsman may have different responsibilities or requirements so it is best to ask and be sure. Usually you will ask both your attorney what the court requirements are and ask your bondsman separately because one may not know nor take the responsibility to inform you for the other.
