• Bail is an important factor because it is what prevents or allows a criminal defendant to make their way out of jail.
  • A Bail review in NJ is important and most places treat it similarly, in that the criminal defendant is entitled to a bail; what this means is up for debate.
  • Bail can work to help a defendant by allowing that defendant to use a bail bondsman to only put up a portion of the bail amount or posting 10% of the bail amount.
  • In either case, a review of one’s bail that a family cannot make on behalf of a criminal defendant is a very important step in the process, and an experienced attorney should always be consulted.
