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.
Some F.A.Q. (Frequently Asked Questions) about Bail Bonds
Are Some Bondsmen Less Expensive Than Others?
Like discounts, the bail bond expenses depends on the city’s statutes and regulations. Bonding agents are usually licensed and regulated by the state. The guiding principle is that the premium prices are not to be “excessive, inadequate, or unfairly discriminatory.” If the accused is interested in the least expensive bail bonds in his region, he/his nominee can go to the website to find out what the prices that permitted by law in his location.
What Do Bondsmen Accept As Collateral?
Each bonding office will have their own standards but for the most part the accused can expect them to accept various forms of bail collateral. Some example of collateral may include:
- Real estate
- Credit cards
- Personal credit
- Bank accounts
What Happens If The Accused Gets Re-Arrested While Out On Bond?
Once the accused is back in custody the bond can be surrendered and his liability will be terminated. There are a few problems here: if the accused decides to surrender the bond will lose the premium that was paid, and if the nominee decided to get the accused out on bond again, he will now have to post two new bonds and pay the premium on both bonds again.
