What is Bail?

Bail—also referred to a bail bond—is the amount you must pay and the promises you must make to be released from jail until your criminal case is resolved. Usually, within 48 hours of your arrest, you will be brought before a magistrate who will set the amount of your bail and any other conditions for your release. Keep in mind there are exceptions to this procedure, particularly for charges involving murder or domestic violence. If possible, you want an experienced criminal defense attorney to attend this hearing with you as this could result in bail being set at a lower amount.
