What is bail?

Back to Miami Criminal Defense Attorney Frequently Asked Questions

Video Transcription

Bail bond are words that describe the collateral, usually financial collateral that people post. Cash, in other words, to get out of jail either on a federal or a state case after you’ve been charged. The whole purpose of posting bail or posting bond is to ensure your appearance at all court proceedings.

In state courts there is usually a standard list of how much the bail will be for individual crimes. In federal court you almost always have to appear before a federal magistrate judge or a federal judge even if there’s an agreement as to what your bail will be so that the bail can formally be set. It’s based on many factors: the crime or crimes that you’re allegedly involved in, your prior criminal history, your ties to the community. The key questions on bail and bond are: 1. Are you a flight risk? 2. Are you a danger to the community?
