Pretrial Services Fort Wayne:Bail bonds & Pretrial Release

Gavel in front of booksBeing arrested for a crime can be a shocking and confusing experience in Fort Wayne, Indiana. You may not know what to do next, but you know you want to spend as little time as possible in jail. A judge will often allow a defendant to be released on bail. In making that decision, the judge will look at a number of factors, including:

  • Whether the judge thinks you will return to court
  • Whether you will commit another crime or constitute a risk to the community

Typically, bail consists of a surety bond that is issued through a bondsman. The defendant pays a nonrefundable 10 percent of the required bail to the bondsman who covers the full amount of bail the court is asking for. The bondsman guarantees your return to court.

Bail can come with various conditions in addition to the financial cost. There may be no contact orders, orders to abstain from drugs or alcohol, or any other type of order that the judge deems appropriate to your individual circumstances.

Having the right criminal defense attorney represent you at your bail hearing can help ensure that the financial cost is appropriate to the circumstances and that you are not facing any onerous conditions of release.
