What Do I Need to Know About Bail Bonds?

There are two important items to remember when posting bail. The first is the monetary amount of a bond set by the court, and the second is the manner in which you may post a bond.

The manner in which you may post a bond can take several forms:

  • Personal Recognizance: No monetary amount needs to be posted in order to be released. Typically “PR” bonds are reserved for the least severe misdemeanor offenses.
  • Cash/Surety: The defendant most post the full bail amount or contract a bond agent who guarantees a surety to the court.
  • 10%: The offender needs only to pay ten percent of the bail amount.

Bail amounts and conditions are not set in stone and may be revised either by the judge or can be challenged by the defendant.

Factors that influence the monetary amount and conditions of bail:

  • prior criminal history
  • record of appearance or nonappearance in court proceedings
  • history of addiction or substance abuse
  • mental condition of the defendant
  • gravity of the offense
  • probability of conviction
  • employment status
  • defendant’s ties to the community

The primary concern of courts, when determining the amount and conditions of bail, is whether or not the defendant will return to the court to stand trial for the crime they stand charged with committing. Therefore, it is helpful to have a friend or family member present to vouch for you in front of the judge. In addition, bringing paperwork regarding employment or medical conditions can also impact the decision of the judge or magistrate.
