What Is Bail? What Is A Bail Bond?
When an individual faces criminal charges, the government detains them in jail until bail is set. A judge or other representative of the criminal court with jurisdiction over the case then sets a bail amount.
When the defendant or a representative pays the bail, they can leave the jail. Otherwise, they must remain in jail until the date of their trial, often months later.
Strictly speaking, bail and a bail bond are two different things. Bail is the amount the defendant must pay to leave jail and await trial at home. A bail bond is the money itself, or whatever else serves as collateral for the defendant’s release.
When a defendant leaves jail, they make a promise to adhere to any conditions set by the court. That includes remaining in Texas and attending all scheduled court dates. A bail bond is something that backs up that promise.
For example, when a defendant pays their bail amount the court holds that money ‘in trust.’ The court won’t use the money. So long as the defendant keeps his or her promise, the court will return the money after the trial date. The money held and returned is a bail bond.
Sometimes, instead of paying the bail amount, a third party or ‘surety’ such as a bail bond company will take on financial responsibility for a defendant’s release. If the defendant breaks their promise, the surety must pay the bail amount to the court. This is called a surety bond.
What Determines My Bail Amount?
Several factors determine a defendant’s bail amount. The severity of your charges, for example, plays a big role in your bail amount. Those who have committed particularly severe crimes or whom the court deems violent, dangerous, or a high flight risk might have high bail amounts or receive no bail at all.
On the other hand, those with no criminal history, strong community ties, and relatively minor charges may not have to pay bail at all. When a court grants a personal recognizance (PR) release, the defendant simply signs an agreement with the court to adhere to the conditions of their release.
Similarly, those offered a personal bond use themselves as collateral for their release. The defendant signs a personal bond agreement. Should they break their promise to the court, they will be liable for further criminal and possibly civil charges.
What Fort Bend Bail Bond Services Does ASAP Offer?
ASAP offers several bail bond services to clients in Fort Bent County. The most common is fast loans for cash bonds. These loans allow you to pay the bail amount for yourself or your loved one and secure your release. Then, you pay the money back later.
However, ASAP also helps qualifying clients seek PR releases and personal bonds. If you believe you are a candidate for a PR release or a personal bond, contact ASAP today.
Sometimes, ASAP secures a client’s release using a surety bond instead of a cash bond. In these cases, instead of paying money directly to the court, ASAP takes on financial responsibility for the client’s release.
For clients arrested in another state, ASAP also offers transfer bond services. A transfer bond allows a client arrested out of state to leave jail and return to Texas. Only a bail bond company in the client’s home state can act as surety for a transfer release.
Finally, ASAP offers federal bond assistance for clients facing federal charges. The federal bonding process is more expensive and complex than that for state-level criminal charges. Consequently, only a bail bond company with extensive experience and resources like ASAP can handle federal bonds.
