Making Sense of the Complex Legal System
Bail bond hearings are an intrinsic part of the justice system. Because
the laws can often be complex and difficult to grasp, understandably you
might feel lost and confused about what should happen next. Not all
criminal offenses will be eligible for bond, however; these may include violent
crimes or drug crimes, as examples. These offenses often entail significant
penalties and are often not eligible for bail.
Other factors that may determine whether or not a person is eligible for bail:
- The person’s risk of hiding or fleeing from law enforcement
- Whether or not the individual poses a threat or danger to the public
If the accused person seems likely to flee and escape arrest, jail, or
conviction, then a judge may be reluctant to issue bail. Allowing for
that moment of freedom presents a risk that the person could commit another
crime or repeated offenses.
