Definitions | Limitations

Bail is set by a Magistrate Judge shortly after arrest. It defines the terms of release. A person may be released on their own recognizance (ROR), released on conditions, or required to post cash bail. Where cash bail is required, a person must generally post ten percent (10%) of the stated amount.
