What is bail and how is it set? Bail is basically an insurance policy guaranteeing the accused will be present for future court hearings. Bail is set by the judge assigned to your case. Here’s how it works:if your son is arrested on Monday morning, by law he will be scheduled to make a first court appearance in front of a judge within 24 hours of his arrest. During the first court appearance, your son will be officially read his charges, and if it’s a misdemeanor crime, he may have the chance to enter a guilty or not guilt plea. And if the accused can not afford an attorney of their own, they will be appointed one. At the end of the hearing, the presiding judge will determine your son’s bail based on several factors including, the seriousness of the charges, criminal history and employment status.
