Common issues in this area include DUI charges and criminal mischief defense. One common question we often get is "Will I be kept in jail a long time before getting the opportunity to post bail? Is it common to have to sleep in jail overnight?"
In setting the amount of bail, a judge in a criminal case looks at your prior convictions, whether you've lived in the same community for a long time, the nature of the crime, whether you pose a risk to anyone if released from jail, and a warrant for your arrest will be issued. At the end of a case, whether you're convicted or not, you will get the bail money back. Some charges, however, are so severe that the judge will decide to hold the defendant without bail until the trial is over.
If you have no record and your offense is minor, you can be released on OR. You can get out merely by promising to appear at the court date.
