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 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.
Release on own recognizance requires a written promise signed by the defendant, saying that they will return on the court date for the court appearance. 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 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.
Surety bonds are arranged by bail bonds agents, who require a 10% premium to be paid. 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. If the defendant fails to appear in court on the court date, the entire amount which the agents paid for bail must be paid.
