What Is Bail, and How Is It Set?
Bail essentially ensures that the defendant will follow the judicial process after being released from custody. Once the bail is “posted”—meaning paid—to the courts, the defendant can leave. However, if they fail to appear for their court date or follow other procedures specified in their court documents, they might have to forfeit the amount paid.
A judge sets bail based on a variety of factors, including:
- Seriousness of the charges—felonies can cost five to 10 times more than misdemeanors
- Past criminal record
- Employment status
- Citizenship status
- Personal ties to the community
What Is a Bail Bond, and What Does It Cost?
When you think of a “bail bond,” a surety bond is most likely what you picture. That’s our specialty at AA Professional Bail Bonding in Lilburn, GA. This scenario entails a friend or relative of the accused posting a percentage of the bail amount through a bail bondsman, who secures the defendant’s release by pledging to pay the rest if they don’t cooperate with the courts. A bail bond usually costs 10 percent of the full bail amount. If the bail is set at $600, for example, the bond will be $60.
