The Methodology Judges Use For Setting Bail

Avatar

Fast Bail Service

Judges use a bail schedule to set the bail amount that they can change by considering the circumstances of the case. Following a suspect’s first court appearance after an arrest, judges usually set a bail amount either during bail hearing or an arraignment. However, it is not that bail is mandatory for releasing an arrested person. Judges not only have the power to change the bail amount but also waive it all together by granting release on the ‘own recognition’ of defendants depending on the circumstances of the case. But once a bail amount gets fixed, the defendant must post bail to seek release from jail. Here, they can take help from bail bond agents who work for bail bond companies and get in touch with them via bail hotline. They can even post bail by paying in cash personally. Relatives and family of defendants can post cash bail in court or purchase a bond.

 What influences bail amounts

The seriousness of the crime and how dangerous it is influences bail amount. Also, judges consider other factors like employment history of the defendant, past criminal record, and whether the defendant has close ties with the community and family.

To decide on the bail amount, courts are using algorithms or complex mathematical formulae.   By entering selected information about the defendant into the software program, the system shows a score that becomes the recommendation. By considering the age of the defendant, criminal history, and some other information, the program does a complete risk assessment. It determines the chances of the defendant failing to appear at court or committing another crime.  

Bail denial

There are some circumstances when judges may deny bail. Sometimes, another jurisdiction places a warrant on a defendant. In such a case, the judge would like to keep the defendant in custody as long as possible so that the other jurisdiction gets enough opportunity to pursue the charges. And if judges feel that there are high chances of the defendant fleeing, then it would be hard to convince the judge to allow bail.   The track record of the defendant in criminal matters and the seriousness of the case are the most critical factors in getting bail.

Jailhouse bill schedule

Posting bail is easy in many jurisdictions that maintain posted bail schedules that allow defendants to post bail with the police before appearing at the court for arraignment or bail hearing.  For common crimes, bail schedules have specified amounts mentioned. Soon after the arrest and booking the defendant can seek release by paying the cost of bail mentioned in the bail schedule. Bail schedule can vary depending on the type of crime, locality, and residency.  

Bail amounts for misdemeanors are quite low, whereas that for offenses categorized as felonies can be 5 to 10 times higher. The amount of bail increases with the seriousness of the crime, and there is no flexibility in the jailhouse bail schedule. Only a judge has the power to reduce the bail amount if there is some ground for it. 

Besides bail schedules, there are duty judges in some jurisdictions. Duty judges can convey the bail over the phone without holding court.

There are many ways that you can look to maintain you and your body. As well as conventional medicines, plenty of people use complementary or alternative therapies to keep things as they wish – either alongside medication or instead of it. Whether you want to take good care of your body, or you’re dealing with a medical issue, alternative therapies may be something you have considered or are considering to explore.

Here’s a quick overview of what that means, and some of the options that may be available to you.

What are alternative therapies?

What are alternative therapies

via: Thriive

The NHS in the UK says there isn’t a universal agreement on what complementary and alternative medicines are. However, it cites the terms used by the US National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH):

  • Complementary: When a non-mainstream practice is used alongside conventional medicine.
  • Alternative: When a non-mainstream practice is used instead of conventional medicine.

There are many different types of alternative therapies; some of which you may have heard of, others less so. The advantages and benefits of alternative therapies have been debated, although there are some therapies that are effective for treating certain conditions.

Below are some of the alternative treatments you may have come across. If you do consider these therapies, it’s best to speak to your doctor beforehand. This is because some of these items may interact with medicines you’re already taking.

Acupuncture

This treatment is about stimulating specific parts of your body, and one of those ways is to penetrate your skin with thin needles. Electrical stimulation is another way of doing this.

Acupuncture can have a positive effect on certain conditions, such as insomnia and premenstrual syndrome (PMS), plus many types of chronic pain, including osteoarthritis and neck pain. A 2016 study found it may also be useful for chronic or tension headaches.

Chiropractic medicine

This form of therapy focuses on the structure of the body (mainly the spine), and how it works. A trained chiropractor will manipulate the spine, or other parts of your body, to make sure it’s in alignment.

The aim of this is to make sure pain is eased, and the body works properly so that it can heal naturally. Much of the research on this practice has focused on the lower back, but there’s evidence that it can help with neck and joint pain, as well as headaches.

If you have any questions before starting a treatment, speak with your doctor first. They will be able to help you decide if it is suitable for you to start it, what the side effects may be or how it’ll affect any other treatments you have, plus other queries you may have.
