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. They are given a date when they can settle their charges, and before then, they are brought to jail. They are given an option to be released from jail, too, commonly by posting bail.
What is bail?
Bail is some sort of security, usually a large sum of money, given to the court for the release of a person which guarantees the person’s appearance in all of his required court appearances.
What are the types of bail?
There are two types of bail: cash bail and bail bonds.
What is cash bail?
Cash bail is bail in which the court specifies an amount payable in order to release a jailed person. 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 processed by bail bonds agents and agencies, who only need to be paid a non-refundable premium, usually a tenth 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?
Major collateral items like boats and cars are good collateral, but their value will be of the current time, not of what you bought them for. Items that you are currently paying for, like a house or a car, are considered bad collateral, and must be avoided.
