FAQ about Bail
In the instance that someone is charged with a crime, a booking process, lasting for around an hour or two, occurs in a local law enforcement, commonly the police department in the city. 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 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 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. The posted collateral will then be used to pay the remainder of the cash bail when the defendant fails to appear on court.
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.
