Is There A Difference Between Bail And A Bail Bond?
People often use the words ‘bail’ and ‘bail bond’ as if they mean the same thing. However, each actually names a slightly different part of the bail bond process.
‘Bail’ is the amount of money a defendant must pay to leave jail between arrest and trial. When a court charges someone with a criminal offense, the court will also set a bail amount. If the defendant pays that amount, they can leave jail until their trial. If they can’t or don’t post bail, however, they will most likely remain in jail until their trial.
When someone leaves jail before their trial, they make a promise to the court. They promise to attend their scheduled court dates and adhere to any other conditions set forth by the court. The bail money is intended to back-up that promise.
The ‘bail bond’ is the bail money itself. The money doesn’t belong to the court. Instead, the court simply holds onto the bail bond as collateral. If the defendant keeps their promise to the court, the court returns the money. If they break it, they forfeit all or part of the money.
Sometimes, the defendant doesn’t pay money directly to the court. Instead, a third party, called a surety, takes on financial responsibility for the defendant’s release. If the defendant breaks their promise, the surety must pay the full bail amount. This is called a surety bond.
How Do Brazoria County Courts Set Bail?
Essentially, the riskier the court decides a release is, the higher the bail amount. The court may deny bail altogether to defendants deemed especially dangerous to the public or high flight risk.
However, for most defendants, the court grants bail. Several factors influence where the judge sets a bail amount. For example, the severity of the alleged charges plays a major role. More serious crimes have higher bails.
A defendant’s criminal history is also important. Prior criminal convictions usually mean a higher bail amount. A clean criminal record means a lower bail amount.
Finally, a defendant’s ties to the location such as work, family, and community involvement play a role in bail amount. For defendants with especially strong community ties and clean records, the court may not even require bail at all.
With personal recognizance (PR) and personal bonds, the defendant doesn’t need to pay any money to the court. Instead, the defendant signs a written agreement promising to adhere to the conditions of their release. If they don’t they may be subject to further criminal and possibly civil penalties.
