Watch it if you are Interested in A Bail As a Means to Get Out of Jail After Being Arrested.
REMEMBER that posting a bail DOES NOT free you from your responsibilities to answer for your crime in court. A bail is a money guarantee that the defendant will show up in court at the appointed date. A bail is generally either:
a) A sum of cash
b) A piece of property that has a cash value.
Generally, if you do show up to court when you are supposed to after being let out of jail, the court will return your bail. But in case you do not show up, the court will keep your bail and most likely issue an arrest warrant for you as well.
How does Bail hearing procedure take place? In order to decide whether to allow a person to post a bail, the court examines the history and character of a person. The court pays attention to:
– Physical and mental condition
– Financial resources
– Family ties
– History relating to drug and alcohol abuse
– Criminal history
– Record concerning appearance at court proceedings
– Length of residence in the community
If a defendant poses a threat to the safety of the community, he or she may be held without bail.
A defendant, released under a bail, may be required to:
-Maintain or seek employment
-Undergo drug and alcohol testing
-Undergo medical, psychiatric, or psychological treatment
-Maintain or commence an educational program
-Comply with a curfew
-Refrain from excessive use of alcohol or any use of narcotic drugs
-Remain in the custody of a designated person
-Comply with periodic check-ins with authorities
-Refrain from possession of a firearm
-Refrain from contact with crime victim or others designated by the court
-Execute a bond agreement with the court or a solvent surety in an amount as is reasonably necessary to ensure the defendant’s appearance.
