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. 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 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, as they are commonly shortened to, do not need bail to be posted, and only asks to be promised that under ROR, the defendant will not do any more offenses. However, RORs are only given to less serious cases, and if the petition for an ROR is rejected, only the bail options are then available.
The cash bail option requires the defendant to pay a usually hefty amount of money in full in order to be released. The amount is kept by the court and returned in full once the defendant completes all their court appearances. Cash bails, though, cost a lot of money, thus many people choose the surety bond option.
Surety bonds are arranged by bail bonds agents, who require a 10% premium to be paid. This stipend, although a lot cheaper, cannot be reimbursed even if the defendant appears on court. 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 instance that the defendant fails to appear, the entire amount costed by the bail bonds agent for bail must be paid.
