Learn about what bail is, how it works, how it is set, the bail process, bail types and conditions, and more.

The purpose of bail is to make sure that a person accused of a crime (a defendant) will come to court for proceedings related to their case after they are released from jail or from being held at a police station. Bail is not a form of punishment, but a way of helping to ensure that a defendant will appear in court at a later date.
