A bail bondsman is a company or person which, for a fee, posts bail for the release of defendants held in jail because they are charged with a crime.

In all of the United States except for Illinois, Kentucky, Oregon and Wisconsin, bail bondsmen can earn profits from this business of posting bail for a fee. In the rest of the world, except for the Philippines, profiting from this activity is illegal.[1]
