If you are ever arrested you will want to get out of jail as soon as possible. Without bail, you may have to stay in jail until your court date. When you are let out on bail, you are released from jail but must return to your court date.
Bail is a promise that you will return for your court date and to face any consequences you might face.
How Bail Can Help You?
If you have been arrested and do not want to stay in jail until your court date, bail can be the solution. A judge will set a bail amount that you must pay to be released.
This amount is based on the nature of the crime, your criminal record and other factors as well.
