Stay at home throughout the trial. Bail is collateral and gives judges the confidence that the defendant will be in the comfort of their own home during the trial.
The judge will take into consideration how serious the crime is in determining the amount of bail. The bail should also be set so that the defendant has no reason to run.
An arrest warrant may be issued for someone who doesn’t attend their trial because they are out being held on bail. If they are not able to provide an adequate reason as to why they skipped the trial they would be thrown in jail.
Bail bond costs are high, however the person who is requesting them does not necessarily have to cover all of the costs. In most cases, the person is bound to pay a tiny part of the bond amount for the privilege of staying out of jail.
Overall, bailbonds are essential to the process of judicial review. Bailbonds enable those accused of crime to be released from jail while their verdict is going through. In some cases, bail could be too high, so property may be offered to secure the bail instead.
