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 also given an option to be released from jail, with three options readily available, including bail. Bail can be considered as an incentive for a person released from jail to return for court appearances.
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 do not require bail to be posted, and only require the person to promise that under ROR, he will not commit other offenses. On the downside, RORs are only usually granted to less grave misdemeanors, thus they are only left to post bail.
The cash bail option requires the defendant to pay a usually hefty amount of money in full in order to be released. The amount is kept by the court and returned in full once the defendant completes all their court appearances. However, cash bails are expensive, so most people choose a surety bond.
Surety bonds are organized by bail bonds agents for a tenth of the posted bail. 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 instance that the defendant fails to appear, the entire amount costed by the bail bonds agent for bail must be paid.
