What is a PR Bond?
Also known as a Personal Recognizable Bond, is when a judge releases the defendant without any deposit or collateral. However, defendants must still promise to appear in court even if they had their bond conditions removed. Therefore, these bonds are quite rare.
To be granted a PR bond, the judge considers several factors. These include what type of case it is if it was the violent and criminal background. The judge may also look for whether or not the defendant has good standing in the community in which they live. Therefore, the court grants this type of bond if the defendant has no criminal history, in other cases, the defendant may have to write a one-page letter to the judge explaining their situation.
This will then go through the title of Motion for Personal Recognizance Bond or Motion for Bond Waiver.
When police arrest suspects, they are physically detained and brought into custody. Typically, individuals under arrest are placed into a police vehicle and then transported to jail or criminal facility for the administrative process known as “booking.” The police can also release offenders without filing charges. The police file charges, the defendant remains in custody until the court lifts the bond. Other factors involve a court’s judgment or until upon finalizing the case.
As stated before, the booking or administrative process is the stage that follows an arrest. During this part of your legal process, the police perform a series of tasks. These tasks involve recording personal information such as entering their name, date of birth, age, taking fingerprints, and retrieving any physical possessions the defendant may have, placing them into storage. The authorities also search for any warrants, performing a health evaluation, and finally place you in a holding area.
