Bail

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.
