How Does Bail Work In Texas?
When a person is arrested and charged for a crime/wrongdoing in Texas, usually the subject is taken to a nearby police station or county jail for booking, before imprisonment. Traditionally, bail is some form of property, usually in the form of cash or cash substitute, deposited or sworn to a court to persuade the release of a suspect from jail, on the understanding that the suspect will return for trial or forfeit the bail. This property is held by the court till all the trial proceedings are over, meaning a judge or jury has ruled on the case.
It’s a judge’s job to set bail. Because many people want to get out of jail immediately (instead of waiting for a day or longer to see a judge), most jails have standard bail schedules that stipulate bail amounts for common crimes. The accused person can often get out of jail that day or soon after by paying the amount set forth in the courthouse bail schedule.
There are two ways the accused can get a release from custody.
Surety Bond Cash Bail
Release on Own Recognizance (O.R.)
Some F.A.Q. (Frequently Asked Questions) about Bail Bonds
What Will Happen If The Defendant Does Not Show Up For Court After Bail is Posted?
There are certain procedures you can discuss with the bondsman. The bondsman will most likely search for the accused and hand them over to the authorities for booking when captured. The accused will once again go before a judge and this time most likely be denied bail. You can read more about this procedure on the court website or bail bonds website in your county.
What Happens If The Defendant Wants To Leave The State Or The Country While On Bond?
The defendant needs to make sure they have permission from the court/bonding agency to leave the country or the state. If they leave without permission, they are subject to being given a warrant. Which will lead to immediate arrest.
Can The Defendant Receive A Discount From The Bail Agent For The Premium?
The fee of the bail agent depends on the rules and regulations of the state. For example, the defendant may need to pay 8% in some states while in the other states the allowable premium may cost 10%. They may offer the defendant a discount, but most of the time will pay the full amount in the end. Asking the bail agency to show you the fee chart can explain the fees in more detail. Or you may visit the state’s website for getting guidance about procuring a bail bond with a different agency.
