How Does Bail Work in Texas?
If an individual is caught and arrested for a crime, they are booked at a local law enforcement agency, and the process lasts for 1-2 hours. They are given a date when they can settle their charges, and before then, they are brought to jail. They are also given an option to be released from jail, with three options readily available, including 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. An ROR includes the promise to not commit other offenses, and does not require bail. 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.
As the name suggests, cash bails requires cash to be posted as bail to the court. The amount posted will be held by the court, and will be fully returned if the defendant successfully appears on court. 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. 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. However, at the instance that the defendant fails to appear, the entire amount costed by the bail bonds agent for bail must be paid.
