When determining bail a judge will
consider the accused flight risk and the severity of the crime. If an
accused has a criminal history, or a history of not showing up for court
appearances, that may affect a judge’s decision about bail. The judge
may consider whether the suspect is a risk to others, whether the
accused has ties to the community, the stability of residence, work
history and the nature of the crime. As a result of this information,
release conditions and bail terms are established. Ultimately, the bail
is at the judge’s discretion, although some jurisdictions have bail
schedules, which set a standard bail amount.
Once a judge has determined an amount for bond, the defendant usually can
be released if he or she posts the bond in cash or in assets. If the
accused or the family of the accused does not have the money or the assets
to pay for bond, they can apply to a bail bondsman. Nationwide Bail Bond
Agents is a directory you can search to find a local bail bondsman.
Bondsman charge a percentage of the bond amount, usually between 10 and 15
percent of the bond money depending on the state and will supply the rest
of the money so that the suspect can leave jail. If a suspect cannot
afford bail or a bail bondsman, he or she can appeal the bond through his
or her attorney.
