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. However, they can also opt to be released from jail by posting bail, among other release options.
What is bail?
Bail is anything, usually money, that can be used as an incentive by the court to make sure the defendant returns to his scheduled court proceedings after release.
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 are normally set at a high price, so most people opt for a bail bond.
What is bail bond?
Bail bonds, sometimes called surety bonds, are the cheaper option compared to cash bails. Bail bonds are usually handled by bail bonds agents, and their fees, commonly 10% of the cash bail, can vary depending on the case.
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 like a house that you are still paying a mortgage on are considered bad collateral, as well as items you purchased on credit in which the lender holds the title and you make payments to.
