What is Bail?
Depending on the location of the arrest a person may or may not need to go before a judge in order to have their bail set. In order to ensure the possibility of a reasonable release time using bail many detention facilities have bail schedules, which sets the bail amount automatically based on the crime committed. However in some places when a person is detained they must be arraigned. This is when they go before a judge to have their bail amount set in person based on their crime, previous arrest record and other factors.
The point of bail is to allow a person to live freely until the case is settled in court. Bail can be paid in full in cash or check, which is returned to the payee following the case's dismissal. However this dollar figure is often in the tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars, making this an unlikely option for most people. A bail bond can also be used by paying a licensed agency a percentage fee to post the bond; a much more affordable option. Regardless of how it is initially paid bail acts as a contract stating the defendant will show up at all of their scheduled court appearances. If they do not the person who posted bail for them may become responsible for paying the entire bail amount.
