Frequently Asked Questions:

 

What is a bail?

1) The term bail could be used in several distinct forms

  • it may indicate the security-cash or bond-given for the appearance of the defendant 
  • it may also mean the bondsman (i.e., the person who acts as surety (signer on the bail bond) for the defendants appearance, and into whose custody the defendant is released).
  • As a verb, it may refer to the release of the defendant (he was bailed out)

          The first meaning is the most common and should be employed for clarity

 

Admission to bail is an order from a competent court that the defendant be discharged from actual custody upon bail. The discharge on bail is accomplished by the taking of bail (i.e., the acceptance by the court or magistrate of security -either an undertaking or deposit-for the appearance of the defendant before a court for some part of the criminal proceeding).

 

Bail is evidence of a bond or recognizance, which as a rule becomes a record of the court. The bond is in the nature of a contract between the state on one side and the defendant his sureties on the other. The agreement basically is that the state will release the defendant from custody the sureties will undertake that the defendant will appear at a specified time and place to answer the charge made against him. If the defendant fails to appear, the sureties become the absolute debtor of the state for the amount of the bond.

 

Does the bail bond continue eternally, can you get it returned?

When the bail has served its purpose, the surety will be exonerated (i.e., released from the obligation). Exoneration normally occurs when the proceeding is terminated in some way or on the return of the defendant to custody. After conviction, the defendant appears for sentence. If sentence to jail confinement or imprisonment the defendant is committed to the custody of the sheriff, and the liability of the surety/s is discharged.

 

What is the purpose of bail?

The purpose of bail is to assure the attendance of the defendant, when his or her appearance is required in court, whether before or after conviction. Bail is not a means of punishing a defendant, nor should there be a suggestion of revenue to the Goverment.

 

What if the defendant is sentenced to probation?

A defendant who is convicted and given probation is released from custody and the bail bond must be exonerated as a matter of law.
