Hello,
My name is ***** ***** I am an experienced criminal lawyer.
If the defendant keeps getting rearrested, then the amount of bail set on each new matter will generally just get higher and higher. Almost all criminal defendants, however, are entitled to some sort of bail.
If he's supposed to pay you back but hasn't you could sue him for the money he owes you. Of course, if he doesn't have that kind of money in the first place, you won't be able to collect it, even if you win in court. This is one of the risks you take when you agree to act as surety to bond someone out of jail.
As you appear to be in contact with the bondsman, if you don't feel this defendant is a good risk for bail, then you have no obligation to bond him out and use your house for collateral and wind up incurring unnecessary debt. You can just say no in the first place, or discuss with the bondsman your withdrawal as surety.
The system just sets bail. It does not require you or anybody else to pay it.
