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. They are then brought to jail when they are given a court date to settle their charges. They are also given an option to be released from jail, with three options readily available, including 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.
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. An ROR includes the promise to not commit other offenses, and does not require bail. 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.
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, these are costly and expensive; thus, most people opt for a surety bond.
Surety bonds are arranged by bail bonds agents, who require a 10% premium to be paid. This 10% fee is non-refundable, and cannot be returned even after the defendant completes his court appearances, which is how bail bonds agents earn. 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.
