Getting an Unsecured Bail or OR Bond Release

Your Sacramento criminal defense attorney will make it a priority to get you out on bail. There are a few different types of bail that your attorney might pursue, depending on the circumstances of your case. The type your attorney pursues will depend on the nature of your crime and where you were arrested.

If it is an option, your attorney will likely pursue an unsecured bail, or a release on your “own recognizance” (an OR bond release). These bails typically require no deposit save for your signature. There may be a nominal amount tied to the bond, but you do not have to pay it unless you fail to show up in court. This type of bail is typically only available to individuals whom the court has determined not to be a threat.

Even though such a bail would only require a signature as collateral, there are still consequences if you fail to show up in court. Failure to show up in court is a crime, and you are unlikely to be released on bail for it. Even if you are not charged for a separate offense, your failure to appear in trial will be factored into your charges. Either way, it would warrant twenty-five years of extra jail time, as well as make your current charges much more difficult to fight.

Whatever the type of bail you receive, you need an experienced Sacramento criminal defense attorney to give yourself the best chance of fighting your criminal charges. Call Sacramento criminal defense attorney Param Pabla today for an initial consultation.

“Param was excellent in my court case of failure to stop at a stop sign. The officer could not see clearly because he was too far away. The officer insisted he could and said he had video but could not produce it at the trial. The officer then asked if he could suspend the trial to go get the video but the judge said he should have had plenty of time to get the video ready beforehand. Needless to say, the judge ruled in my favor and dismissed the case which enraged the officer. Pabla Param’s defense and cross examination skills were excellent and paramount in having the case dismissed. Highly recommended.” T.C.
“My husband and I needed to update everything -family trust, will, medical stuff. Param was really patient -answering all my questions -even when I asked them twice. He wanted to be sure I understood everything we were doing. All docs were sent to us so we could go through them on our own time before anything was finalized. I also liked when we were looking at medical stuff that he had a conversation with me about what I wanted and pointed out some things I didn’t think of.” Debbie
