Temporarily Free: Understand the World of Jails, Bail, and Bail Bonds


Before being proven of guilt or innocence, a person under suspicion must stay under arrest until the day of the trial. The law, however, grants those accused of crimes with temporary freedom if they are able to post a determined amount of bail, given that they show up whenever the court calls for them.

Under the law, the price is dictated by a judge or an arresting officer during first contact with someone arrested under the suspicion of committing a crime. In most states, however, the bail bond is typically set at 10% of the bail amount.

People who are not privileged enough to post bail almost always stay behind bars and have lesser chances of being able to stay in the comfort of the outside world. This is one unfortunate problem that remains rampant with today’s justice system.
