Get Your First Month Free

Everyone typically has some sort of daily routine that they follow, they get up, go to work, run errands, relax at the end of the day, and then do it all again the following day.

When it comes to bail, there are plenty of terms out there that people do not recognize. One that many people want to know about is own recognizance release. Some people have heard rumors that own recognizance release is a way to bail out of jail without paying. Those rumors would be correct, but it is not that simple.

The judge will look at the factors when determining if a person will be released on own recognizance:

Is Bail Ever Denied?

Is Bail Ever Denied?

Some people may not realize this, but there is a chance that a person can be denied bail after his arrest. While the Eighth Amendment to the Constitution prevents excessive bail, is does not guarantee that everyone will be allowed bail. There are some instances when a person is denied bail, and most people would agree with those instances.

The main reason that an arrested person would be denied bail, is that he poses a danger to the community. This fact is often determined by looking at the crime that the person was arrested for.

Another common reason for a person being denied bail is that he poses a flight risk...

Who Determines Bail Prices?

Everyone grasps the concept that bail is expensive. While bail bonds can greatly reduce the cost, they still tend to cost a couple thousand dollars. This is the kind of money that most people do not have lying around, waiting to be spent. It makes you wonder, if everyone knows bail is super expensive, why is it set so high?
