What is the Purpose of Bail?

 

If someone that you care about has been locked up and accused of one crime or another there is one thing you can do to ensure that they get through the situation as best as possible, and that's to post their bail. By posting their bail they will be able to walk free from their tiny cell as they await their day in court. The ability to do this is crucial to their chances of making it through the court system with the best possible outcome. The purpose of bail isn't just to get out of jail, it helps ensure a fair and just trial. Let's take a closer look at why you should post bail for your friend or relative.

Allows the defendant to seek proper legal assistance

By posting bail for someone they will have the opportunity to do research from outside their jail cell about who they should recruit for legal assistance. Without this ability they may end up having to settle for an uninspired and appointed defense attorney who doesn't have the desire to put much effort into a case.

The defendant can keep working/going to school

Another crucial reason to help your friend or relative is to ensure that they are able to continue working or going to school as they await their court dates. If they are locked up they will likely be fired or miss out on important assignments.

Prepare for life after court

If the chances of going back to jail following court are high the time they have outside the jail cell will allow them to prepare their life for their future sentence. This means they can get their bills in order, arrange for care of children, pets and other family members and take any other necessary steps to ensure everything is taken care of prior to being locked up.

It is the defendant's right to be free

Bail is a right afforded to people arrested in America by the constitution. A person is innocent until proven guilty, but unfortunately that innocence prior to court often comes at the cost of a fee. Either way, the defendant has the right to walk free prior to any verdict being read by a judge at their trial.
