How Does “Bail to Avoid Jail” Work? When one is arrested for committing a crime, he is innocent until proven guilty. However, the person will be put to jail and the prosecution moves on. Unfortunately, the criminal justice system takes a long time to resolve a case. In order to remain free while waiting for the court appearance, the accused person posts a bail. The Basics While the presumption of innocence is true, the government has the duty to ensure those charged with crimes will show up in court. This is the main purpose of posting a bail — to ensure the accused person or the defendant will be present during the court schedule. Once arrested, the defendant can give any of the following to be allowed to be able to avoid jail: check or cash, interest in real property, property, bond, or a payment waiver with the condition stating that defendant appears on court schedule.  The different forms, e.g., money, interest, property and bond, must be equivalent to the entire amount of the bail. It is intended to ensure the defendant comes to court schedule. This is the reason why it should be high enough to achieve its purpose. However, the 8th Amendment (U.S. Const., 8th Amend.; U.S. v. Salerno, 481 U.S. 739 in1987) restricts anybody from establishing an excessive amount. Theoretically, it cannot be used by the government for raising money nor can it be used for punishing the defendant. Hence, the amount must be reasonable enough to serve its purpose which is to guarantee the defendant’s presence at the court’s appointed time. The bail is refunded to the defendant if he finishes the case without...
Bail: Getting out of Jail The first, and probably the only thing, that preoccupies the minds of people in jail is how they could get out as quickly as possible. One way this could be achieved legally is by paying bail. Bail is the cash or any other form of property given by a charged or arrested person, to secure his release from jail with the understanding that he will present himself anytime he is needed in the court. If the defendant absconds or does not return to court at the prescribed time, he not only forfeits his property or cash, the court can order his arrest. Bails Bail is usually set by judges. After being charged, a judge can decide if the defendant can be granted indemnity or remanded. However, to prevent overcrowding and to allow people the chance to get out of jail immediately, judges may demand a fixed fee for common crimes. Judges can also opt to lower the usual amount if the defendant is unable to pay the standard amount. The defendant can ask for a reduction in the amount in a special hearing or when he is brought to the court for the first time (arraignment). In certain states, if the defendant cannot afford indemnity, it is legal for him to use the services of a bondsman. The bondsman advances him the bail amount while charging a percentage. When the defendant shows up in court, the bondsman can then collect the amount owed to him/her. Setting Bail by Algorithm Technology has made it possible to design algorithms that can use the suspect’s data to calculate the amount a suspect...
The Dangers of Prolonged Pretrial Detention The story of Jerry Hartfield asks questions of justice in the American Justice system. Jerry Hartfield, was a black Texan who was convicted of the robbery, murder, and rape of Eunice Lowe, a 55-year-old white Texan who sold bus tickets at the bus station in Bay City, in 1977. His conviction was overturned three years later by a federal court, as a result of the fact that a juror, who had qualms about the death penalty, was excluded in the initial trial. However, Hartfield was returned to jail where he spent the next thirty-five years, expecting a new arraignment. It took the efforts of a fellow inmate in 2006, to bring attention to Hartfield’s case. Hartfield who had an IQ of 51, well below the 70-mark threshold for mental capability, had believed his detention was legally permissible. Hartfield’s counsels made a case for him to be released on the grounds that he had been deprived one of his human rights; the right to speedy trial by the state of Texas. However, the courts ruled that Hartfield’s detention could only be challenged if a retrial acquits him of his crime. The retrial was scheduled for 2015, more than 35 years after his alleged initial crime. Should We Reconsider How the System Is Working? Hartfield’s case while bordering on the extreme, shows the menace and threat continued detention of inmates pose to the ethics of the American judicial system. There are approximately 730,000 people awaiting trials in American jails at any point in time. Most of these people will be arraigned in front of a court in a short time. However, the...
