How Does Bail Work?
Bail is a type of bond (it can either be cash or property) that a defendant deposits to the court to ensure their appearance to their scheduled trials. Once a defendant posts bail, they can get out of jail and await their trial without their freedom being restricted. If they fail to show up to their proceedings, they will forfeit their bail money to the court.
The court will determine the bail amount within 48 hours after the defendant’s arrest. During a bail bond hearing, the judge will set the amount according to the nature of the crime, number of occurrences, and the defendant’s flight risk. Sometimes, due to the court’s uncertainty and the severity of the crime, the judge will set a larger bail amount.
Not all defendants can post the entire bail amount due to their financial situation. As a result, they wait for their trial in custody instead of preparing for it in the comforts of their home.
The lack of money to post bail shouldn’t stop you from securing your loved one’s release. Ease your worries with bail bonds in Florence County from Amistad Bail Bonds.
