How Does Bail Work in Texas?
If an individual is caught and arrested for a crime, they are booked at a local law enforcement agency, and the process lasts for 1-2 hours. The booking process gives them a court date to resolve the charges, and before the date, the arrested person will have to be jailed. Alternatively, they can also choose to be released from jail through posting bail. Bail can be thought of as enticement for a jailed individual to appear in court on the given court date once released.
There are three release options available: release on own recognizance, cash bail, or surety bond.
To be released on your own recognizance, the defendant needs to sign a written promise that they will appear on court when they are needed to. RORs do not require bail to be posted, and only require the person to promise that under ROR, he will not commit other offenses. 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. However, these are costly and expensive; thus, most people opt for a surety bond.
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. On the good side, these agents can be paid in a variety of ways, from credit cards to collateral, and they are also responsible for ensuring the defendant appears on court. However, at the occasion that the defendant fails to appear, the entire amount which the agents spent, from the court bails to other miscellaneous fees must be paid in full.
