The following are five simple, but very important steps in an arrest scenario and bail process.

Arrest Occurs

An arrest occurs when a police officer reasonably believes that a person has broken the law. At that point, the suspect is taken into custody and processed before being directed to their cell to await their arraignment.

The Arraignment

At the arraignment, the judge will formally announce all charges, while also establishing the “cost of bail”. Sometimes the bail amount will simply follow standardized guidelines in accordance with the charges. However, there are cases where bail may be denied because the defendant is deemed a flight risk or possibly even a threat to public safety.

Bail Bond to Post Bail

Once the bail amount has been set, the defendant is qualified to be released from custody. At that point, the defendant commonly needs a loved one to step forward and pay for a bail bond. Typically, a bail bond will cost 10 percent (%) of the full bail amount.

Attend All Court Appearances

After your loved one has been released on bail, it’s absolutely critical that they appear on-time to all court dates. If they fail to appear, then a warrant will be issued for their arrest and, as the co-signer on the bail bond, you could be stuck with a very expensive tab.

The Verdict

Once the verdict is announced, the defendant will be let go or sent back to jail. Or, they may be instructed to report for their jail term at a later date.
