Why Does a Person’s Bail Sometimes Change?

Most people don’t deal with bail on a daily basis so it is often a foreign experience for them. Trying to rescue a loved one from jail can be intimidating and frustrating.

While this doesn’t happen all of the time, it can happen. Sometimes the bail amount goes down, though it can also go up. If the price goes down, you can breathe a sigh of relief. If it does increase, it can be very frustrating indeed.

Bail amounts can change after a person has gone to their first court hearing...

The need for bail can arise without warning. As such, most people are not prepared to post their loved one’s bail. They need time to get enough money for the bail bond, but they are afraid they will miss the window to post bail entirely. Luckily for them, the time limit for posting bail is very forgiving.

While there is a time limit to posting bail, that limit is dependent on the length of the person’s trial period. You have until the court reaches a verdict on your loved one. After that point, a person can’t be bailed out. Once the court has decided whether your loved one is guilty or innocent, they either no longer need the bail or can no longer be bailed out because they are serving their sentence.

California Parole Violations

California Parole Violations

The state of California has what is known as a mandatory parole system. This means that any time a person finishes their prison sentence, they have to then be put on parole. When a person is on parole, they may be out of jail, but they have to live a restricted lifestyle. There will be certain conditions placed upon the person that they need to follow.

If the person fails to follow those conditions, they could get themselves into even more trouble. That is the last thing a person wants when they are on parole and so close to being done with their punishment. This is why a parolee has to take their parole terms and conditions seriously.
