Someone held on bond?

When people say someone convicted is being held on $500,000 bond, does it mean the convict will be released if the convict or someone else pays $500,000?

Thanks!

    No. It just means the convict doesn't have to wait in jail between the time of conviction and the time of sentence. A licensed bail bondsman gives his bond to the court that he will be responsible for the $500,000 if the defendant does not appear for sentencing.

    No, it means a bond is posted, money is set aside, and if the person fails to appear the bond is forfeited to the Court.

    Yeah until his court date then they decide his punishment. And you only have to pay 10% of 500,000
