    What is the context?

    If the context has to do with jails, arrests, etc., then it would mean "I will post a bail bond so that you can get out of custody prior to your conviction and sentencing."

    Another possibility is that it refers to abandoning another person, especially at a time of great need. The word "bail" in that case would come from "to bail out" (to exit an airplane in an emergency by using a parachute).

    to bail on (someone) = dejar abandonado (generalmente a ultima hora)
    dejar plantada/o.

    pero ojo! porque on bail también es "bajo fianza"

    Como dice Thomas, depende del contexto. Contanos de qué se trata.
    Saludos
