What if the person I bailed out of jail, skips town?

The purpose of bail is to assure the attendance of the defendant, when his or her presence is required in court, whether before or after conviction. Bail is not a means of punishing a defendant, nor should there be a suggestion of revenue to the government. Whe the defendant fails to appear in court, and “skips town” with unknown whereabouts this means that the defendant has broken the contract of his bail. The surety or depositor may arrest the defendant, or authorize a bail enforcement agent or private investigator to do so for the purpose of surrendering him into custody to ensure his future appearance.

They all start out with a couple or a person doing something really fun in a car, like going to a drive-in theater, going out to a fancy dinner or going on a road trip. Seems pretty normal until the camera eventually turns to the back seat of the car, where you see the Volkswagen sales guy sitting there asking if the test drive can be over yet. As you laugh, you think to yourself this would never happen in real life. Well for the most part you would be correct, but in one instance recently in Florida, a quick test drive for a man became a one way ride to a jail cell and a meeting with a bail bondsman. Last week an Ocala, Florida man went on a
