If this is the first time you have been arrested you may not know much about the bail process. Bail is the set amount of money given to the court on loan as a promise that, upon freeing someone who has been arrested, that the person arrested will attend all future court hearings. The bail amount acts as collateral to keep the person accused of a crime from ignoring court dates or running from the judicial system they must now defend themselves in. As long as the defendant attends all court dates and trial proceedings, the bail amount is returned at the conclusion of the trial.

Setting Bail

Bail is determined either initially by a set of Schedules at jail, or later at arraignment by a judge. When a judge makes this determination, it is set into a Court Order and becomes the only way to be released from jail for that defendant. A judge decides on the bail amount by taking into account a variety of factors. These factors include:

  • the severity of the alleged crime with which you are charged
  • the possible evidence against the defendant
  • any previous record of criminal activity – especially if it may be a repeat offense
  • any previous bail record
  • any previous court attendance record
  • ties to the community (i.e. family, work, how long the defendant has lived locally)
  • any risk the defendant may pose to the public or local community
  • any history of substance abuse or mental illness
  • consideration of the defendant’s financial status so as to photo of open handcuffs, freedom, jail releasenot discriminate against those of lower incomes

Sometimes, a defendant may be released on OR (Own Recognizance). This is when the judge is all but entirely convinced the defendant will return for trial proceedings without further motivation, incentive, or risk of avoidance. In this case, the defendant merely signs a document promising to return for each court date without necessitating any law officials to retrieve them. OR is granted only for non-violent crimes where the defendant poses no flight risk and it is infrequent.
