FAQ about Bail
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 given an option to be released from jail, too, commonly by posting bail.
What is bail?
Bail is specially designed as an incentive for the individual to appear in court on the assigned court dates.
What are the types of bail?
There are two types of bail: cash bail and bail bonds.
What is cash bail?
Cash bails require the defendant to pay a large amount of money upfront to the court for his release. Cash bails set by the court are usually hefty that not many people can afford, thus they choose to have a bail bond.
What is bail bond?
Bail bonds, or surety bonds, are what most people opt to since it only needs a fraction of the cash bail to be paid. Bail bonds are usually paid to bail bonds agents, who require a non-refundable fee to be paid, usually 10% of the cash bail.
What is collateral?
Collateral is usually given to your bail bonds agent, as payment to guarantee the appearance of the defendant, although not necessary. If the defendant fails to appear, the posted collateral will be used to pay the remainder of the cash bail.
What are good and bad collateral?
Items like cars and boats are considered good collateral, but they are normally valued at their current resale value, not what you originally paid for them. Items that you are currently paying for, like a house or a car, are considered bad collateral, and must be avoided.
