What are the release options if someone is arrested?
There are five basic release options available. The five options are:
- Cash bail means a person must give the court the total amount of the bail in cash. The cash will be held by the court until the defendant appears to all of his/her court cases and the case is concluded. Full cash bonds provide a powerful incentive for the defendant to appear in court. If the defendant appears for all of his/her scheduled court appearances, the cash bail should be returned in full.
- An alternative to cash bail is a surety bond. This process involves a contractual undertaking guaranteed by an admitted insurance company having adequate assets to satisfy the face value of the bond. The bail agent guarantees to the court that they will pay the bond forfeiture if a defendant fails to appear for their scheduled court appearances. The bail agent’s guarantee is made through a surety company and/or by pledging property owned by the bail agent.
For this service, the
defendant is charged a premium. Prior to the posting of the surety bond, the
defendant, friend or relative must contact a licensed bail agent.
- In rare cases an individual may be released by posting a property
bond with the court. With a property bond, the court records a lien on the property
to secure the bail amount. If the defendant fails to appear in court as scheduled,
the court may foreclose on the property to obtain the forfeited bail amount.
Release on Personal (Own) Recognizance
(P.R.) - Another method of release,
pending trial, is through a county or law enforcement administered pre-trial
Release on Citation (Cite Out)
- This procedure involves the issuance of a citation
by the arresting officer to the arrestee, informing the arrestee that he/she must
appear in court at an appointed court date.
