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. After given a court date to settle their charges, they are then incarcerated to a 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.
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. 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.
The cash bail option requires the defendant to pay a usually hefty amount of money in full in order to be released. The cash is held by the court and returned once the defendant has completed his court appearances. Cash bails, though, cost a lot of money, thus many people choose the surety bond option.
Surety bonds require bail bonds agents, the ones who will do the bail, to be paid a 10% premium. This stipend, although a lot cheaper, cannot be reimbursed even if the defendant appears on court. The fee is also payable through credit cards and collateral, among other possible ways, and bail bonds agents are responsible for the defendant to appear on court. On the downside, if the defendant fails to appear in court, the entire amount paid by the agents must be covered.
