Bail is a function to ensure your presence at future court hearings. That’s how a bail hearing works. A bail hearing is your first court date after your arrest.
You have the right to have a lawyer present on your behalf. A lawyer is considered a defender. The judge is present at the hearing, as is the prosecutor.
For minor crimes, the bail may be in the form of a written undertaking to appear in the future, or in the form of a bail if the conditions for your release are violated. The prosecutor will make a recommendation to the judge regarding your bail. The judge will decide the type and amount of bail at his discretion and both sides will make their recommendations. You and your solicitor will make the recommendation about your bail. A judge will take many factors into account when determining your bail.
In setting your bail, the judge will ask questions about a variety of aspects of your life and crimes of which you are accused. You may have to pay a deposit in cash or some form in court before you are released. This is known as a cash bond. This type of deposit is also known as a signature bond.
If the alleged crime is a misdemeanor, the usual solution is to sign a low-value cash bond. If you are detained, the jurisdiction that issued the outstanding arrest warrant must respond. An outstanding arrest warrant for an earlier crime can result in your release being delayed. This is because the warrant was issued before your current arrest to deal with a current matter. An arrest warrant for failure to appear at your bond hearing may be suspended for a short time so that the court can respond.
Your judge will want to know that you will stay where you are for the duration of your case. Allegations of violence, drug offences or other threats to the community should be carefully examined and never released against a signature. The people you rely on to help you avoid further trouble with the law. For example, families with a criminal record may be less able to help you.
You will also be asked about your previous work history. You will be asked how long you have been unemployed. You must be willing to tell the judge where you worked, when you were employed and for what hours you worked. No answer is too soon, no matter how damaging the information may seem.
A lack of prior arrests can act as a mitigating factor in terms of the amount of your deposit. In more serious cases the court can ask for your ownership of real estate, vehicles and other personal property. A home, vacant property or other personal property must be pledged to meet the deposit.
Substance abuse can affect judgment to the extent that a person ignores future court dates. Previous convictions for drug or alcohol use can result in higher bail. If the judge has your records on his desk, he or she knows you are lying. If you lie, you can end up in prison until your next court date, with no hope of being released before that date.
If you do not provide a deposit, you can apply for a reduction of the amount. If you post bail, you must apply for your release from custody. Be prepared to meet all the conditions if the judge orders your bail to be reduced. Any reduction is at the discretion of the judges. No deposit at all.
