9. What happens if the bail is not posted?

The person remains in custody until the court decides that the bail is not needed. Releasing on O.R., or own recognizance, is considered if the person has appeared in court whenever asked in the past or has no criminal record. In this case, the person is released on his/her word to show up in court when asked.

The bond is valid until the case is resolved. Once the person is sentenced whether they are found guilty, or are innocent or the charges are laid off, the bond will be absolved.

Defendants on bail usually have no travel restrictions unless any specific court orders. Sometimes the co-signer wants certain travel conditions that the defendant is bound to follow.
