Bail and Bondsman

Bail is money or property that is deposited to the court by a defendant who is in custody and charged. The amount and type of bail are decided by the judge at the first court appearance. A court will consider the defendant’s individual circumstances when setting bail. Excluding murder and certain violent felonies, a judge sets the amount of bail to give the accused person enough incentive to return willingly to the rest of his or her court obligations. A defendant who has been arrested for a crime will usually be held in custody until some form of bail has been posted. Bail is the defendant’s guarantee to return and be present at all court proceedings. Otherwise they wait in jail. Contact a bail bondsman if you do not have enough money to post bail yourself and to get more information on the bail process. Be prepared to pay a fee for the use of their services.
