This is a bond that assures you will appear in a court proceeding. It is not a catchall bond that covers everything that will come up in the case. To get the appearance bond you have to give your word (bond) that you will appear to finish settling the accounting. It is issued by the hearing officer, if it is requested and if there is no controversy. If you are honorable enough not to start arguing with the hearing officer or the Complainant, or the prosecuting attorney, you can get this bond.
There must be no controversy. That fact is established by your voluntary act of accepting the charging Instrument for value and returning it. In doing so, you are exchanging your exemption (credit) for the discharge of the charge(s). You are bonding your pledge to appear and settle. If it were not voluntary, that would be bondage. You must tell the hearing officer that you are not disputing any of the facts.
Dispute: A conflict or controversy; an assertion of a right, claim, or demand on one side, met by contrary claims or allegations on the other. The subject of litigation; the matter for which a suit is brought, and upon which issue us joined, and in relation to which jurors are called and witnesses examined.
When you enter a dispute, you join the issue and confirm the existence of what was just an idea, making it materialize and give subject matter that can be tested by a jury or witnesses.
Once you ask for the bond, it is yours. If you ask for it again, it will appear that you do not know you already have it, and the hearing officer will proceed as though he is talking to a debtor/straw man. A debtor/straw man does not automatically get an appearance bond. It may be required to pay for a bail bond. An appearance bond with conditions incorporates a cost to you.
If you have requested the appearance bond at no cost to you, there will be no conditions to the release. If you do not ask for it that way, there may be conditions – like drug testing, required meetings with court officers, or required daily or weekly phone calls. Those are a cost to you, as they take your time and your property.
If you don’t appear AND settle the accounting, you will be in dishonor of your word (your bond), and the appearance bond will be revoked. They will not tell you it has been revoked. Your dishonor will then be used to carry out the presumption that you are representing the straw man in a fiduciary capacity, and that you are in breach of your fiduciary duty. That is not allowed in equity. Then the debt of the straw man will be put on you. If there is not enough property held in the name of the straw man to cover the dishonor, or if you as trustee refuse to turn over the trust property to settle the debt. They will take your body as surety for the debt. It is the trustee’s body being taken. You volunteered to be the trustee.
