If he doesn't want to stay in jail for all those months while waiting to stand trial, he can be let out on bail. The amount of bail he will need to pay is decided by the court based on how much money he has available and the severity of his crime as well as the risk of him leaving the area and not coming to court.

If you want to do this job, you should consider relocating to a country where bail bondsmen exist in order to find a career in the field.
