What Is Bail?
Description: Bail is money paid to a court to authorize the release of an arrested suspect from jail. An arrestee is released from jail and is expected to report to court as directed (or satisfy some other pre-trial conditions) or forfeit the bail. If forfeited, a warrant is usually issued. The amount of the bail is generally set depending on the nature of the offense, the individual's criminal history, and other factors. In certain cases bail is denied.
