AKRON, Ala.— Alabama Bail Bonds of Hale, Greene and Sumter County has recently shared a blog post explaining how bail is determined. The Hale County bond agents explain in their blog post the key factors that go into determining bail when decided by a court of law.

Alabama Bail Bonds writes, “Once the defendant has been processed in the jail, the defendant will ordinarily receive the amount their bail has been set at during their first court appearance typically the same day as the arrest or the next soonest business day (if arrested over a weekend). . . . The judge will then consider a number of factors to determine the amount of bail through standard practices or the charge.

Factors the judge would consider, according to the Hale County bail bond company, are (but are not limited to) “the severity of the crime, whether or not the defendant has employment, the defendant’s prior criminal history, whether the defendant has close ties to relatives and the community, and whether or not they may be a danger to the community.

The blog continues with an explanation on bail algorithms and how they help determine bail. “Recently, many court jurisdictions have begun using specially designed math algorithms to make informed decisions about release from jail [and] pretrial,” the blog says. The blog explains that the defendant’s information is entered into a program that generates a score that recommends the amount of bail. “These bail algorithms are designed to assess the likelihood the defendant will commit another crime, or whether they may fail to appear in court at the appointed time.

Alabama Bail Bonds issues a disclaimer: “While these are the standard things a court will look at, there will be variations between state to state, the accused crime, and the individual.
