Bail Allows Defendant To Prepare
One of the most important aspects of bail is that it allows defendant to obtain an attorney who will provide them the best possible representation in court. They can work with the attorney to prepare their case in the comfort of the attorney’s office, or anywhere deemed convenient, instead of from the jailhouse meeting room.
Continue With Day-To-Day Life
Another reason bail exists is so that a defendant can be released from jail in order to continue with the day to day lives. Instead of being locked up they can continue working or going to school, caring for their family, paying bills and enjoying the comforts of home. All too often people are locked up for several days, preventing them from working which results in them losing their job.
Make pre-detention arrangements
If it seems imminent that an extended stint in the county jail will occur a defendant can make the proper arrangements when released on bail. Depending on the likely length of their sentence they can contact their bank to cover mortgage or rent payments, shut off power and water to their home, or if necessary place their home on the market. They can also make plans with their family to care for children or pets.
Of course, for the courts, bail is the assurance that the defendant will appear in court when their time is due. Bail is a contract between the court and the defendant saying they will do so, in return for their freedom prior to their court dates.
