A bail bond is considered some type of *property* deposited or pledged to the court allowing a person to be released from incarceration, with the promise that the person / suspect will return on the date appointed by the court. If the person fails to appear for the appointed date set by the court, a forfeit of the bail and possible criminal charges could be brought against the suspect. There are many times when a bail amount can be refunded based on the conclusion of the trial whether the case is found guilty or not guilty.
There are many circumstances in which a bail bond cannot be processed. Different crimes can warrant this decision. There are legislations passed that will not allow certain types of crimes to be eligible for bail.
There are different types of bail bond laws which are usually divided into two segments, state laws and federal laws. Federal laws would be applied to a person who is arrested directly for a federal crime. These federal crimes can vary but typically involve crossing state lines and the like.
States have their own laws concerning the bail bond industry, which they regulate. In the states that allow for bail bonds, the laws cannot be excessive for the crime committed. Many federal bail bond laws are requiring that a bail hearing be processed to take no longer than 24-48hrs after a defendant is charged and brought into jail.
There are three types of bail bonds. They are surety bonds, property bonds, and cash bonds. The surety bail bond is processed through a bail bond company who will post the bail amount for 10% of the bail amount. This percentage could be as low as 8% under certain circumstances. All bail bonds are returned once the client has completed their obligation and a judgment in the case has come to fruition. A cash bail bonds are typically done by a person who would like to pay the full amount of the bail and agrees to return on the given date set by the courts. A property bail bond consists of a person putting their personal property up as collateral to fund the bail amount set by the courts.
Recognisance: The term recognisance means that a defendant is released without bail and he or she promises the court that they will appear on the scheduled court date as well as all proceedings, will not flee and will not engage in illegal activity.
Citation release - citation release is also known as cite-out. A citation release is processed by an arresting officer to their arrestee in which he or she agrees to appear on the scheduled court date(s). A citation release is enforced right after the citation is given to the individual. Usually citation releases do not carry a financial security.
Surety bonds - in a surety bond, a third party will take the responsibility of the defendant. In many states this type of service is performed by a bail bondsman. The bail amount is normally 10% and as low as 8% but can vary from state to state depending on the state laws. In this type of bail, a licensed bail bond agent guarantees the court that the defendant will appear on the specified dates or the forfeited bond would be paid by the bail agent.
Property bonds - with a property bond a person commits real property equal to the amount of the bail. If the defendant fails to appear in court, the state can then begin proceedings to recover the property on the bail that has been forfeited. In some instances the property value could be twice the amount of the bail.
Cash bonds - this type of bail pertains to the court accepting cash for the release of the defendant on bail. The court will hold the money until the individual appears in court on the scheduled date(s). If the defendant appears on their scheduled court date(s) the cash is returned. With the cash bail bond the defendant is their own guarantor
Bail laws can differ from state to state, and understanding those laws is what makes us experts in our industry. Normally, a person who is charged with the non-capital crime is typically entitled or granted bail. In some states bail can be denied depending on the charges such as violent offenses, or if the defendant is a flight risk or danger to the community. Many states have very strict guidelines that judges must follow; the guidelines are published as the bail schedule. The bail schedule lists just about every type of crime defined by the state law and has a direct correlation to the dollar amount of the bail. If the judge decides not to go by the bail schedule they will list the specific reasons for the court record. In some states they will require the defendant to pay fines as well as certain forfeitures. In the state of Texas a bail is granted only after a conviction, if an appeal is implemented and only if the defendants imprisonment time is 15 years or less. In the state of Tennessee, all offenses are typically able to post bail, but as mentioned bail can be denied depending on the crime.
If you do not appear on your scheduled court date it could be considered an offense, in which a bench warrant or arrest warrant could be issued by the court. If this is a reoccurring pattern by the defendant, they could revoke the option for bail. In the event the defendant does not appear on the scheduled court date(s) they could forfeit any cash or property they put up as collateral. It is important to understand the importance of appearing on the date(s) the court has requested. If the defendant is not able to appear on the scheduled court date(s) it is vital to inform your attorney or bail bondsmen.
