How Does Bail Work in Texas?
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. Bail can be thought of as enticement for a jailed individual to appear in court on the given court date once released.
There are three release options available: release on own recognizance, cash bail, or surety bond.
The release on own recognizance option requires the defendant to promise the court to appear if needed by signing a written note. RORs do not require bail to be posted, and only require the person to promise that under ROR, he will not commit other offenses. However, RORs are only given to less serious cases, and if the petition for an ROR is rejected, only the bail options are then available.
Cash bails require the defendant to pay a certain amount determined by the judge so that they can be released. This amount is held by the court and then refunded to the defendant if they complete the required court appearances. The downside is that cash bails are usually exorbitant, thus most people opt for a surety bond.
Surety bonds are arranged by bail bonds agents, who require a 10% premium to be paid. This stipend, although a lot cheaper, cannot be reimbursed even if the defendant appears on court. This premium, on another upside, can be paid not just by cash, but also by credit card and collateral, among others, and the agents are then responsible for the defendant. If the defendant fails to appear in court on the court date, the entire amount which the agents paid for bail must be paid.
