Can a cosigner of a bond go to jail?

No, a cosigner of a bond cannot go to jail even if the defendant flees. If the defendant jumps bail or breaks the bond conditions, the cosigner will be held liable for the entire bond amount and may be required to assist in returning the defendant to custody. Any additional fees incurred trying to relocate the defendant may also be passed on to the cosigner of a bond. As long as you don’t aid in the defendant’s evasion of law enforcement or any additional crimes, the cosigner will only be financially responsible.
