If I post bail for someone and they leave the state/don't show for court, can they come after me?

Bail forfeiture

I'm not sure I understand what you are asking.  If you post bail for a defendant, you will forfeit the bail if the defendant does not show up for trial.  Beyond that, you have no liability, assuming you did not aid the defendant in his flight from justice.  Hope that helps.
