What’s Bail? What’s A Bail Bond?
‘Bail’ and a ‘bail bond’ are actually two different things.
When the police arrest someone, the government may or may not charge that person with a crime. If the criminal court feels there’s enough evidence, it will levy criminal charges.
When that happens, the arrestee must stay in jail until a bail amount is set. If the defendant pays the bail amount, he or she can leave jail until the trial. Otherwise, the defendant must remain in jail.
Tehcnically, bail is the amount of money set by the court. The defendant needs to give that money to the court as collateral for release.
When a defendant leaves jail, he or she makes a promise to appear in court for their criminal trial. The money paid to the court backs up that promise.
While bail is the amount of money specified by the court, a bail bond is the money itself. A bail bond is the collateral that backs up the defendant’s promise. When a defendant or their representative puts up a bail bond, the court holds the money ‘in trust’ until the trial.
That means the court will not spend or keep the money. When the defendant has successfully kept their promise to the court, the money is returened.
Sometimes, however, no money is paid up-front to the court. Instead, a third party, or surety, to take on financial responsibility for the defendant’s release. If the defendant fails to keep their promise, the surety must pay the full bail amount to the court.
How Do Courts Determine Bail Amounts?
Courts set bail amounts based on several factors. The first is the severity of the defendant’s charges. More serious crimes tend to have higher bail amounts. Next, the court considers criminal history, as well as the defendant’s percieved flight risk and danger to the public.
The court may deny bail altogether to defendant’s deemed too dangerous or likely to flee following their release.
On the other hand, courts also consider positive factors when considering bail. For example, a clean record and strong community ties tends to result in a lower bail.
Courts may even grant some defendants a personal recognizance (PR) release or a personal bond.
With a PR release, the defendant can leave jail after signing a written agreement with the court.
Similarly, with a personal bond, the collateral backing up someone’s promise is their person. They don’t need to pay money to the court. Instead, they sign a personal bond. If they break their promise, they will be liable for further criminal and possibly civil charges.
