Bail Month - BAIL FACT #19: Commercial Bail is the Most Commonly Used Form of Release. Why? Because it Works!

Monday, September 29, 2014

Bail Fact 19In 2012, the American Bar Association published an updated resource guide, The Law of Commercial and Miscellaneous Bail Bonds.  This publication included a chapter on commercial bail bonds (Chapter 8).  What is so important about this publication and specifically the chapter on commercial bail bonds is that for the first time, the American Bar Association, through this publication, shows an understanding and support of commercial bail.  Identified as the least understood and most under appreciated form of suretyship, commercial bail has become the most widely used form of release by today's judiciary. While many supporters of public sector pretrial release argue against the need for commercial bail in today's criminal justice system, the proof in the research and the wide use of it by judges all over the country is a testament to its effectiveness and importance.
