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. The booking process gives them a court date to resolve the charges, and before the date, the arrested person will have to be jailed. They are given an option to be released from jail, too, commonly by posting bail. 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. RORs do not require bail to be posted, and only require the person to promise that under ROR, he will not commit other offenses. 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.
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. 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 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.
