It is entirely safe to say that absolutely no one wants to find themselves in the position of legally defending themselves in a court of law. However, should you find yourself in the unfortunate position of having to post for bail for a loved one, knowing how the process works is important.
What is Bail?
By definition, bail is a monetary exchange between the accused and the court of law for a provisional release of the accused pending trial. The amount or value may not be fixed or entirely dependent on the nature of the crime and the socio-economic status of the accused. Though these factors play a major role, the judge is the one who ultimately decides how much bail an accused should post to earn a brief reprieve.
