Frequently Asked Questions

What happens when you get arrested?

When an individual is arrested for a crime, the person is typically taken to a local detention facility for booking prior to incarceration in a lock-up station or county jail. Once arrested and booked, the defendant has several options for release pending, the conclusion of his or her case.

The bail system is designed to guarantee the timely appearance of a defendant in court. Bail is also an insurance policy for the State that the defendant will appear to face charges. Further, the legal intent of release on bail is not to relieve the defendant of obligations; it is the retention of control over the defendant to the end that justice might be administered.


What are my release options?

Surety Bond 
A surety bond is a series of contracts that guarantee the defendant's appearance in court. When a professional bail bond agency guarantees that appearance, it is called a surety bond and the bond agency is fully liable if the defendant does not appear through an insurance company, called the surety. In turn, the bond agency charges a premium for this service and often requires collateral from a guarantor. The guarantor generally knows the defendant and is guaranteeing appearance in court. Ironically, while a defendant who fails to appear in court is subject to additional charges, he or she is not normally liable for any bond forfeitures (unless the guarantor arranges such an agreement with the defendant).

Cash Bond
A cash bond requires an individual to post the total amount of the bail (not just 10%) in cash. The court holds this money until the case is concluded. If the defendant does not appear as instructed, the cash bond is forfeited and a bench warrant is issued. In this case, the defendant may be his or her own guarantor.

Note that recent federal laws restrict cash bails in cases involving narcotics. In these cases, all cash or assets used to secure a cash bond or surety bond must be proven to have not originated from narcotics trafficking before bail is granted.

Property Bond
In rare cases and a few jurisdictions, an individual may obtain release from custody by means of posting a property bond with the court. The court records a lien (or right) on the property to secure the bail amount. If the defendant fails to appear, the court may institute foreclosure proceedings against the property. Often, the equity of the property must be twice the amount of the bail set.

Own Recognizance (OR)
OR constitutes an administrative pre-trial release. Usually court administrators or judges interview individuals in custody and make recommendations to the court regarding release on OR (i.e., without any financial security to insure the appearance).Criminal Summons (Cite Out)
This procedure involves the issuance of a citation by the arresting officer to the arrestee, informing the arrestee that he or she must appear on an appointed court date. Cite outs usually occur immediately after an individual is arrested and no financial security is taken.


Who Sets Bail Amounts?

A judge or magistrate normally sets the bail amount for a particular case according to a county bail schedule (a.k.a. Schedule of Bail for All Bailable Offenses) and the particulars of a case. The bail schedule itself is usually set annually by a majority vote of superior, municipal, and other judges.

In setting or denying bail, the judge or magistrate's first concern is the protection of the public, followed by the seriousness of the offense and previous criminal record. Further, the judge must be convinced that no part of the bail was feloniously obtained.
