Is Bail Necessary?
Obtaining bail is every citizen's right according to the 8th Amendment of the United States Constitution. This amendment prevents a person from being detained for long periods of time without a hearing or a trial. It allows the defendant to secure their release by posting a set amount of money. The money paid is to secure a promise to the court that the defendant will appear at all scheduled court hearings. By posting bail and obtaining their release, the defendant can return home to their family, go to work and hopefully, keep their job. It will allow them to fulfill both their legal and financial obligations to the court as well.
In some cases bail may either be denied due to the severity of the charges or because it is in the defendant's best interest to remain in jail. If a person is a repeat offender, the judge may deny bail for the simple fact the defendant may not be able to stay out of trouble long enough to fulfill their obligations. They may also pose a threat to themselves or others. When the judge makes this type of decision it is not taken lightly and every possible element of the case is taken into consideration.
What Is Bail?
Much like the owner of a car buys insurance to protect their vehicle, the court requires bail to ensure that if a person is released from jail early, they will fulfill their obligation and return to court for their scheduled hearings and other court requirements. A bail bond is a legal and binding contract that is underwritten by insurance agencies associated with the Nevada Division of Insurance. These insurance companies can write bail bonds in excess of $1 million dollars if there is sufficient collateral to secure it.
The bail bond contract is a binding agreement between the defendant, their co-signer and the bail bonds agent. The bail bond agent assumes responsibility for coverage of the total bail bond in return for the defendant promising to appear in court and the co-signer promising to make sure the defendant lives up to their obligations and responsibilities. The bail bondman will go to great lengths to explain the process to both the co-signer and the defendant so they thoroughly understand their rights and responsibilities. It is important that both parties are well aware that if the defendant does not appear as scheduled, the co-signer becomes responsible for the full amount of the bond.
Different Types of Bail Bonds
There are many different types of bail bonds. Different offenses may require certain stipulations for the bail bond to be valid. An immigration bail bond, for example, often costs more due to the increased risk of flight associated with the defendant. A bail bond that is written for a person charged with domestic violence may include a protective order that prevents them from going within so many feet or yards of their victim. When you talk to one of our agents, they will be able to tell you if a conventional bond will work for your case. They will also be able to offer you sound advice on what your next step should be. While they cannot offer legal advice, they can help you understand the legal process and point out the importance of having a qualified attorney by your side.
Each type of bail bond is unique because of the case it is written for. The nature of the offense will determine a lot when it comes to the court and the stipulation it requires. Cases that involve special circumstances such as weapons, drugs, domestic violence or risk of flight may require special conditions to be included before the bail bonds application can be approved. Most cases that involve special circumstances are set for arraignment hearings so the judge can personally review the facts and make a determination about how much bail is needed.
