PostSubject: Bail hearing   Thu Nov 16, 2017 5:31 pm

The purpose of a bail hearing is to set the amount of bail and is often combined with arraignment. For most defendants, bail is the most common mechanism of release. Even though the bail process is usually brief, a defendant should take the time to understand the bail process and how bail hearings function.If a defendant is charged with a severe crime, the state may ask that a formal bail hearing be set so the judge can receive more information than nature of the charge. During these bail hearings, the judge can receive information about a defendant’s criminal history, any special circumstances surrounding their current charges, evidence of possible flight risk, and evidence of a defendant’s ability to post bail. The court’s goal at a bail hearing is to set an amount of bail that will insure the defendant will appear at later hearings, and also to consider any risk to the community. Instead of merely increasing the bond, the judge or magistrate may impose certain bond conditions on a defendant’s bail.
