Pretrial Violations

The majority of defendants charged with a crime are given the opportunity to be released prior to trial, provided they agree to return for future court dates and by no means commit new crimes. The United States Constitution and nearly every state constitution specifies that excessive bail shall not be required.

A defendant may be able to secure pretrial release through cash bail, bail bond, property bond, or in some cases, on the person’s own recognizance. Each state has its own procedures for setting bail and release. A violation of the release conditions may result in bail forfeiture or a new criminal offense.
