Yes, a San Mateo bail bond can be revoked. However, the bondsman will need to show he has a good reason for surrendering the defendant back to jail.
Every time a San Mateo bail bonds company posts a bail bond they are assuming a certain amount of liability. A bail bond promises two things. The first is that the defendant will appear for all of their necessary court dates. The second is if the defendant decides they are not going to go to court and they are instead going to flee from justice, the bondsman has one of two options. They have to either locate the defendant and return them to custody within six months or they will be required to pay their full bail amount to the court.
If a bondsman receives a valid, reliable tip a defendant intends to flee the country, this would qualify as a “good reason” for revoking a bail bond. If a defendant falls behind on their San Mateo bail bonds payment plan, this does not qualify as a “good reason” for revoking a bond.
In some cases there may be language written into the bail contract that requires the defendant adhere to certain terms and conditions. These terms can either be set by the court or they could also be set by the San Mateo bail bondsman who is preparing the contract. If these terms and conditions are not met this would also qualify as “good reason” for revocation of a bond.
