You said at the beginning of the article that signature bonds don't require money, yet at the end you state "The amount of a signature bond..." What?
Moderator's reply: The signature bonds do not require the defendant to make a cash deposit. However, the defendant must sign an oath to appear. If the defendant does not appear, the judge will impose a fine, the amount of which is based on the gravity of the offense, which is what the last paragraph is referring to.
