What Is A “Bounty Hunter?”
For some reason, the “bounty hunters” only sound like they’re in the movies or on television shows. It’s how they’re depicted in pop culture that makes it difficult to understand how they are in real life.
Well, in real life, bounty hunters work with bail bond companies when a defendant fails to show up for his or her court date. When the court notifies the bail bond company that a defendant has skipped court, for whatever reason, that specific bail agent is on the line. This specific bail agent will need to pay off the full bail bond, but in an effort to avoid that loss, they will hire a bounty hunter to track the defendant down and get them back into custody.
Bounty hunters may travel across state lines to bring defendants back into court if they have fled. They rarely work with the local law enforcement, but occasionally they must, according to the law.
