Interstate crimes and federal crimes is where Federal Bail Bonds comes in. These are crimes such as defacement of federal property, crimes that may cross state lines, crimes that are investigated and prosecuted by federal agencies (FBI), and also offenses such as kidnapping, tax evasion, drug trafficking, and many more.
If you are ever arrested for a federal crime, the bail amount is most commonly set up to be extremely high. The difference between finding the bail on a federal crime and a non federal crime is that in federal crimes it is up to the judge to determine what the bail amount is. Most likely a judge will determine the bail amount at an arraignment hearing. With non federal crimes the bail amount is set once the defendant is “booked”. So in a federal crime, the defendant stays in jail until the judge determines his or her total bail amount.
