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. They are then brought to jail when they are given a court date to settle their charges. Alternatively, they can also choose to be released from jail through posting bail. 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. An ROR includes the promise to not commit other offenses, and does not require bail. 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.
Cash bails require the defendant to pay a certain amount determined by the judge so that they can be released. 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. The fee is non-refundable, even at the defendant’s complete court appearances. 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 instance that the defendant fails to appear, the entire amount costed by the bail bonds agent for bail must be paid.
