Different Conditions for Release from Jail
After someone is arrested, they must be booked by the arresting agency. This process is used to verify the identity of the individual and discover if there are any active warrants for arrest.
Once a person has been booked, they may be released on their own recognizance, released on cash bail or released on a surety bond—or they may not have the option to be released from jail before their court date.
Released on their own recognizance
Being released on their own recognizance means that there is no bail and the person in custody is released without having to post bail on the condition that they promise to appear for their court date.
Being released on cash bail means that the entire amount of the bail is due in order for the individual to be released from jail. This amount will be returned to the payor after the defendant appears for all of their court dates.
Being released on a surety bond means that 10% of the jail bond amount is required before an individual can be released from jail. Obtaining a surety bond requires the use of a bail bond agent in most cases.
Whether or not your loved one will need to post bail all depends on the unique circumstances of every case.
