When Can a Person Bail Out of Jail?

Thanks to the way bail is portrayed on television, many people have little to no understanding of how it actually works. Some people are under the impression that they can bail a loved one out of jail at any time. They do not realize that there is actually a window of opportunity when a person is actually bailable. Once that window closes, the person cannot be released from jail.

The average person is only bailable during their trial period. This is the time from when the person is arrested to when the person is either found innocent or guilty. After a person has been sentenced, they can no longer bail out of jail.

There are certain steps and conditions in order for the individual, who broke into the car, to be protected from criminal charges. This person first must be certain that there is no way of opening the vehicle without breaking in...
