Know Your Rights

The Bail Reform Act of 1984 governs bail in federal offenses and provides for alternatives to the incarceration of the defendant. In noncapital offenses - a charge not punishable by death - the defendant may be released on her or his own recognizance. The defendant may also be released into the custody of a designated person or organization for supervision. Restricting the residence, extent of travel, and personal associations and activities of the defedant are other possible options. If there is a reasonable likelihood that the defendant will not return for trial, the judge may impose bail.

Bail Option 1


If bail has been granted and you can cover the entire "face-amount" of the set bail, paying the bond in cash can be the easiest way to post a bond. At the conclusion of your case, the entire amount will be returned. However, any restrictions, curfews, and/or conditions of bail must still be met or risk violating the terms of bail and possibly forfeiting the cash bond.

Even when paying the entire cash bond, you may still have to adhere to additional conditions that do not rely on financial capacity. The Bail Reform Act of 1984 has allowed for conditional releases dependent upon such circumstances as maintaining employment, meeting curfews, and receiving medical or psychiatric treatment.
