One term that can come up during the bail process is Own Recognizance (OR) release. When a person is OR released, they are released from jail without the need to post bail. All the person needs to do to get released is sign a paper saying that they agree to show up for all of their court dates. This is what most people would prefer to get, rather than posting bail, but it isn’t easy.
A judge decides if a person will need bail and how much it will be. In some instances, a judge may decide that a person can be trusted to return to court without needing to pay any bail. The judge comes to this decision by looking at the crime the person has been accused of, their criminal record, and a few other things.
