What is Bail?

Bail represents a financial arrangement that a bail bonding agency will make on behalf of the defendant. This acts as a guarantee that the defendant will appear in court as required. The amount of bail can vary widely, depending on the nature of the charge, previous criminal history, and the judge’s discretion. Its primary purpose is not to punish the accused but to ensure their presence at future court dates.

Factors influencing this amount include the severity of the offense, potential flight risk, and community ties.
