The bonding agent took the full amount of the bond from me in cash. Is the agent required to give the money to the court? | Denver Criminal Defense Attorney

No. A bail bonding agent does not deposit cash with the court. The bonding agent files an appearance bond and attaches a power of attorney obtained from the insurance company appointing the agent.  The bonding agent holds the cash as collateral in the event the defendant fails to appear.
