How Does Bail Work in Texas?
In the instance that someone is charged with a crime, a booking process, lasting for around an hour or two, occurs in a local law enforcement, commonly the police department in the city. After given a court date to settle their charges, they are then incarcerated to a jail. However, they can also opt to be released from jail by posting bail, among other release options. Bail can be considered as an incentive for a person released from jail to return for court appearances.
There are three release options available: release on own recognizance, cash bail, or surety bond.
The first option, release on own recognizance or ROR, requires the defendant to make a written promise to appear on court when he is required to. RORs only need to be assured that the defendant will not commit other offenses under ROR, and do not need bail to be posted. RORs, however, are only granted to less serious misdemeanors, and the bail options are the only ones available if the petition for an ROR is rejected.
As the name suggests, cash bails requires cash to be posted as bail to the court. The cash is held by the court and returned once the defendant has completed his court appearances. Cash bails, though, cost a lot of money, thus many people choose the surety bond option.
Requiring only 10% of the bail as premium, surety bonds are arranged by bail bonds agents and companies. This stipend, although a lot cheaper, cannot be reimbursed even if the defendant appears on court. This premium, on another upside, can be paid not just by cash, but also by credit card and collateral, among others, and the agents are then responsible for the defendant. If the defendant fails to appear in court on the court date, the entire amount which the agents paid for bail must be paid.
