How Does Bail Work in Texas?
An individual undergoes a booking process lasting for an hour or two in a local law enforcement in the city if they were arrested for a crime. The booking process gives them a court date to resolve the charges, and before the date, the arrested person will have to be jailed. 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.
To be released on your own recognizance, the defendant needs to sign a written promise that they will appear on court when they are needed to. RORs only need to be assured that the defendant will not commit other offenses under ROR, and do not need bail to be posted. 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.
Cash bails require the defendant to pay a certain amount determined by the judge so that they can be released. The cash is held by the court and returned once the defendant has completed his court appearances. 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 10% fee is non-refundable, and cannot be returned even after the defendant completes his court appearances, which is how bail bonds agents earn. On the good side, these agents can be paid in a variety of ways, from credit cards to collateral, and they are also responsible for ensuring the defendant appears in 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.
