How long does a suspect have to wait before they can post bail?
If the crime is not very serious, a suspect can potentially post bail right after he is booked. If there is not an opportunity to immediately post bail, the accused must wait for a bail hearing. Bail hearings typically occur within 48 hours of an arrest. The presiding judge at the hearing will decide if the suspect is suitable for bail and the bail amount.
How is bail determined?
The nature of the crime can be a big factor in determining a bail amount. Some areas of the country have standard bail amounts for different crimes. The judge can also have a substantial influence. The judge may consider the previous criminal record of the accused, if there is one. If the suspect has a history of run-ins with the law, it will probably not make a favorable impression on the judge. A suspect that a judge considers a danger to others will probably receive a higher bail, if he is granted bail at all. We can help you find a way to pay for bail in Texas.
