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. 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 is specially designed as an incentive for the individual to appear in court on the assigned court date.
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 only need to be assured that the defendant will not commit other offenses under ROR, and do not need bail to be posted. However, the right to be given an ROR is given when the pre-incarceration interview results allows them so, and if they aren’t allowed, they’re left with the bail options.
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. However, these are costly and expensive; thus, most people opt for a surety bond.
Requiring only 10% of the bail as premium, surety bonds are arranged by bail bonds agents and companies. 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. On the downside, if the defendant fails to appear in court, the entire amount paid by the agents must be covered.
