How Does Bail Work in Texas?
In the instance that someone is charged with a crime, a booking process, lasting for around an hour or two, occurs in a local law enforcement building, commonly the police department in the city. They are given a date when they can settle their charges, and before then, they are brought to jail. Alternatively, they can also choose to be released from jail through 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 first option, release on own recognizance or ROR, requires the defendant to make a written promise to appear on court when he is required to. 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.
Cash bails require the defendant to pay a certain amount determined by the judge so that they can be released. The amount is kept by the court and returned in full once the defendant completes all their court appearances. The downside is that cash bails are usually exorbitant, thus most people opt for a surety bond.
Surety bonds require bail bonds agents, the ones who will do the bail, to be paid a 10% premium. 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. This premium, on another upside, can be paid not just by cash, but also by credit card and collateral, among others, and the agents are then responsible for the defendant. However, at the instance that the defendant fails to appear, the entire amount costed by the bail bonds agent for bail must be paid.
