Bond is to Guarantee You Will Return to Court and Protect the Community

Judges or Magistrates generally determine bond issues at the accused’s first court appearance after an arrest, which is usually at the r arraignment. Judges normally adhere to two factors when considering a proper bond. (1) Is the Defendant a risk of flight and (2) is the Defendant a risk to the community. However, judges can raise or lower the standard bail, or waive bail altogether and grant release on the defendant's "personal recognizance" or a cash surety, based on the facts and seriousness of an individual case.

In addition to a money amount of bond, whether a surety or personal, certain conditions are placed on the accused. These bond conditions could include, not leaving the State, refraining from the use of alcohol or marijuana, taking random drug and alcohol tests, and reporting to pre-trial services. Plus you are expected to return to Court on the days your case is scheduled.

If you fail to comply with all your bond conditions, you may be violated. A notice will be sent by the Court, demanding you come to Court and explain the violation. This is probably a good time to get experienced legal counsel to help. If you fail to show up, a bench warrant will be issued and if you are stopped by the police, you will be immediately transferred to the local jail, bond will be revoked and possibly forfeited, and you will remain in custody until you face the Judge.
