What Does It Mean to Post Bail?

When a person is accused of a crime, they must answer to the charges. That means they must appear in court and challenge the allegations made against them. Typically after an arrest, a person is held in jail to ensure that they show up for their hearings. But because courts handle numerous cases, the accused might be required to remain in custody for months or even years. Being locked up while awaiting trial is unfair, especially because a criminal charge does not mean a person is guilty.

When someone posts bail, they have paid money to get out of jail. In exchange for their release, they promise to attend all court proceedings. Essentially, bail serves two purposes: It remedies the injustice of keeping an innocent person behind bars, and it ensures that the defendant will appear in court for their case.

What Is the Bail Process?

The bail process begins with an initial court appearance or an arraignment. At this proceeding, a judge determines what amount to set bail at.

The judge's decision is based on:

  • The crime committed;
  • The defendant's personal and criminal history;
  • The State's evidence against the accused;
  • Whether the defendant is a danger to others;
  • Whether the defendant is likely to flee the area prior to trial

After bail is set, the defendant pays the amount to the court or jail. Once payment is received, orders are issued for the defendant's release from jail.

In situations where the bail amount is beyond the defendant's financial means, they can have a company, such as Andy Callif Bail Bonds, post a bond for them. A bond is essentially a note promising that the defendant will adhere to all conditions of bail, including showing up for all court appearances.

When a bail bond company is used, it will typically require a 10% fee to post bail on the defendant's behalf. If the defendant appears in court as scheduled, they won't be required to pay the remaining amount of their bail (however, the bail bond company will keep the 10% fee for their services). But, if the defendant fails to appear, they are responsible for putting up the entire amount of bail. They may also face additional sanctions, including criminal charges.
