How Does a Judge Determine Bail?

Last updated 6 years ago

The American legal process can be a confusing and tense affair, especially for someone who is unfamiliar with its procedures. One important process within the American legal system is the opportunity for a defendant to be released into his or her own custody prior to trial in exchange for collateral given to the court—also known as bail.

This video explains some of the considerations that are given when judge sets bail for a defendant. These considerations include: the defendant’s ties to the community, whether the defendant is a danger to the community, the defendant’s criminal history, and whether the defendant is a flight risk.
