Bail - Pre-Trial Release in the Federal System

By Robert G. Stahl Esq., NJ & NY Criminal Defense Lawyer posted in Pre-Trial Procedures, Bail, Bail Hearing on Friday, October 6, 2017

When an individual is charged with a federal crime, whether by Complaint or Indictment, they are entitled to a Bail Hearing under Title 18 U.S.C. Section 3141 et seq. Under the relevant statute, a person may be released on a personal recognizance bond or unsecured appearance bond; on a condition or combination of conditions; or detained. The standard for the court is whether the person will appear for all proceedings and not be a danger to the community.
