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. After given a court date to settle their charges, they are then incarcerated to a jail. They are also given an option to be released from jail, with options readily available, including bail.
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, or cash bond, requires the defendant to pay a certain amount of money, usually a hefty one, in order to release the arrested person. Cash bail is usually set by the court at a high price that not everyone can afford, thus they opt for 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 anything of value that can be used to pay for the bail. 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.
