What Is A Bounty Hunter?

A trained, licensed and/or registered professional usually hired by the bail bond company to capture a person who didn’t show up in court hearings and has fled is called a bounty hunter. If the bounty hunter successfully captures the fugitive and presents him before the court he is rewarded in the form of the “bounty,” which is generally between 10%-20% of the bail amount of the fugitive. Bounty hunting is not allowed in Kentucky, Wisconsin, and Oregon and Illinois. Except for these four states, bounty hunting is valid even if not licensed in all the other states of US.
