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. They are given an option to be released from jail, too, commonly by 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 release on own recognizance option requires the defendant to promise the court to appear if needed by signing a written note. RORs only need to be assured that the defendant will not commit other offenses under ROR, and do not need bail to be posted. 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.
As the name suggests, cash bails requires cash to be posted as bail to the court. The amount posted will be held by the court, and will be fully returned if the defendant successfully appears on court. The downside is that cash bails are usually exorbitant, 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. 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.
