OPTIONS FOR RELEASE
5 main options for release from jail
A bail bond, or surety bond, is used to secure funds that can be posted as bail. The defendant must promise to attend all scheduled court hearings in return for being released from jail. The bail company will assess the risk of taking on the bond and then work with the co-signer to find out a way where all parties will benefit.
Own Recognizance (or O.R.)
When a defendant is released on their “own recognizance”, it means the judge believed that the person truly intends to attend their court hearings. Only individuals who are charged with minor crimes get the chance to bail out on their own merit.
A property bond is one that is secured or backed up with various types of collateral. Homes, boats, vehicles and expensive jewelry can all be used as forms of collateral. In most cases, the equity of the property must be over 150 percent of the total amount of the bail bonds. Property bonds can take several days to finish, and if the defendant fails to appear, the co-signer would forfeit their property.
For a defendant to be released on a cash bond, the entire amount must be posted. There are various forms of payment that can be used. All funds used to secure a cash bond must be verified to prove they were received legally.
Once the case is over, the entire amount of the cash bond will be returned to the co-signer, minus and court or attorney fees.
A Cite Out or citation release bond involves giving the defendant a ticket or citation that informs them of the date and time for which they are to appear in court. This is common in most traffic violations.
