The court system can be confusing, especially for first time offenders. Regardless of the crime you’ve been charged with, you may have several questions regarding bail including:

What is Bail?

Bail, in its most basic form, is the release of a person who has been accused of a criminal offense through some type of assurance­­, mostly through money (surety bond) and/or property. The purpose of bail is to assure that the individual will appear for court and face the charges which have been lodged against them. If the individual fails to appear, then the bail which was posted will be forfeited.

How is Bail Set?

Bail is set by a Judge at some point after the individual is arrested and/or charged with a criminal offense. Bail can be set at the time of arrest or bail can be set at a later time, typically during a court appearance of the accused. In setting a specific bail amount, the Judge will consider the seriousness of the offense, the factors surrounding the offense and any other evidence or facts that are deemed relevant to the bail determination.

Can Bail Be Reduced?

Yes. The amount of bail that is set can be reduced. A bail reduction is accomplished by a Judge reviewing the relevant factors and making a determination as to whether the bail that is presently set is appropriate. It is important for the individual to be represented by an attorney at this stage of the proceeding. An attorney may be helpful in successfully arguing that bail should be reduced.

Can a Person Be Held Without Bail?

Yes. A person can be held without bail in certain circumstances. If a person is on probation and they violate their probation, they can he held without bail pending the resolution of their violation of probation. Additionally, a person can be remanded and held without bail pending their trial date if a Judge determines that they pose a significant flight risk or threat to the community.
