FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Here are some frequently asked questions regarding the bail (interim release) process.

1
What is a bail hearing?
A bail hearing is a court session where a judge, as the impartial decision-maker, determines whether a person accused of a crime can be released from custody before their trial. The judge carefully considers factors like the severity of the crime, the accused’s criminal history, their ties to the community and the likelihood that they will re-offend if released from custody. Bail aims to ensure that an accused person will not flee the jurisdiction and not commit crimes while released in the community.
2
How is the bail amount determined?
+
The bail amount is determined based on several factors, including the severity of the crime, the accused’s past criminal record, flight risk, and ties to the community. The judge may also consider the likelihood of the accused committing another crime if released.
3
Can bail be denied?
+
Yes, a judge can deny bail. That happens if the judge believes the accused poses a significant flight risk, is a danger to the public, or if the crime is particularly severe. In such cases, the accused may remain in custody until their trial.
4
What happens if I can’t afford bail?
+
People who can’t afford bail may seek help from a relative or friend. In some jurisdictions, they may seek the services of a bail bond agent (bail bondsman) who can post bail on your behalf for a fee, usually a percentage of the total bail amount. Alternatively, your lawyer, who plays a crucial role in advocating for your rights, can request a bail reduction hearing to try to lower the bail amount.
5
How long does it take to get released after bail is granted?
+
The time it takes to get released after the judge grants bail varies. It can take a few hours to a day, depending on the processing time of the court and the jail. Your lawyer can help expedite the process by completing all necessary paperwork promptly.
