How Do you Get Someone Out of Jail?
The key to getting someone out of jail usually involves paying bail. But before being released, a defendant must complete the booking process, a bureaucratic, often humiliating, procedure. Once that’s completed, the defendant can post bail according to a bail schedule and get released. Or, the defendant awaits arraignment (where the amount of bail can be changed by the judge) or attends a special hearing on setting bail.
In some instances, no bail is required (as explained below). Usually, however, a court will require payment of bail before release. Every defendant who is released must agree to return for scheduled trial and hearing dates, as well as to abide by certain conditions while awaiting trial. Defendants who have committed a capital crime or are considered a high flight risk may be denied bail—that is, these defendants will not be released after arrest and prior to trial. Federal and state laws differ as to when judges have the discretion not to grant bail.
