How to get a release from police custody in Texas?
There are three basic options available to get a release in Texas, these are:
Release on Own Recognizance (O.R.)
How Does Bail Work In Texas?
When a person is arrested and charged for a crime/wrongdoing in Texas, usually the subject is taken to a nearby police station or county jail for booking, before imprisonment. Traditionally, bail is some form of property, usually in the form of cash or cash substitute, deposited or sworn to a court to persuade the release of a suspect from jail, on the understanding that the suspect will return for trial or forfeit the bail. This property is held by the court till all the trial proceedings are over, meaning a judge or jury has ruled on the case.
It’s a judge’s job to set bail. Because many people want to get out of jail immediately (instead of waiting for a day or longer to see a judge), most jails have standard bail schedules that stipulate bail amounts for common crimes. The accused person can often get out of jail that day or soon after by paying the amount set forth in the courthouse bail schedule.
How can I get a refund for a cash bond that I’ve posted?
Cash bonds get refunded once the case has been fully disposed, meaning the defendant has appeared on all court dates set by the judge and has complied with every condition of the bond. Sometimes it will take over a year but most of the time a matter of months. After the criminal case has concluded, the fund order is signed by a judge and processed through the court system in Texas, and the refund is sent back via check. When using a bail bondsman it’s the agencies money that’s tied up until the case has been disposed. Agencies put up the money for bail. In exchange for that service, a fee is assessed but it’s only a fraction of the bail amount.
Can I use my tax return as a payment method?
Your tax return is your credit, we accept tax returns as a convenient payment solution, ask an agent for details. We also offer free tax preparation if used for bail.
Where does the cash put up for bail go after the bond is posted?
Cash is retained at the courthouse until the defendant’s case is disposed and/or the bond is exonerated. The Court will refund the bond posted within two-four weeks after exoneration. Sometimes the defendant will ask the judge to exonerate the bond each time they attend a hearing. The Court is forced to make a minute entry and address the bond issue when it is discussed. Frequently, bond exoneration is not mentioned by the defendant and days or weeks may pass before the Court Clerk asks the Judge what he/she wants to do with the bond.
