How Does Bail Work in Texas?
Once an individual is arrested for a crime, they are brought to a local law enforcement agency to be booked, a process which lasts 1-2 hours. They are given a date when they can settle their charges, and before then, they are brought to jail. However, they can also opt to be released from jail by posting bail, among other release options. 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.
The release on own recognizance option requires the defendant to promise the court to appear if needed by signing a written note. 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 of cash in full to the court, before getting released. This amount is held by the court and then refunded to the defendant if they complete the required court appearances. However, cash bails are expensive, so most people choose a surety bond.
Surety bonds require bail bonds agents, the ones who will do the bail, to be paid a 10% premium. This premium, however, is non-refundable, which serves as a service fee for the bail bonds agents. The fee is also payable through credit cards and collateral, among other possible ways, and bail bonds agents are responsible for the defendant to appear 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.
