Chris’ Criminal Law Comments: Bail Part 3

Attorney Chris Powell, Powell Law Scranton PABy Christopher T. Powell Jr., Esq.

The reason for bail is to ensure the defendant will appear at all subsequent proceedings. The types of release on bail include:

  • Release on your own recognizance (ROR).
  • Release on unsecured bail bond. This means a release conditioned upon the defendant’s written agreement that he/she will be liable for a fixed sum of money if he/she fails to appear as required.
  • Release on nominal bail such as $1.
  • Release on monetary condition. This is the most common type of bail where a person is released upon the posting of a specified sum of money.

The two most common are types of bail are cash bail and unsecured bail.
