Keep reading to learn more.
The Judge May Require You to Meet These Conditions Before Releasing You
Don’t Break the Law
First and foremost, you’ll need to obey the law. This is probably the most obvious condition on the list, but it’s important to know that if you’re out on bail and you break the law, you’ll be inelligible for release.
Furthermore, if you this happens, it’s highly unlikely that you would be eligible for bail if you’re ever arrested in the future. Needless to say, this is something you want to avoid, so our advice is to be on your best behavior and don’t even tiptoe near the line of breaking the law if you’ve been released on bail.
Don’t Travel Outside of a Particular Area
In some instances, a judge may impose restrictions on where you can go. If this is the case, you will likely be limited to certain cities or states until your trial is complete. The perimeter of your restriction will depend on the specifics of your situation and the type of crime you’re alleged to have committed, but in many instances, you’ll need to stick to a certain area.
Maintain or Seek Employment
A judge can sometimes require a person to maintain their employment or get a job as a condition to being released. Having a job shows responsibility and that you’re someone who contributes to society, and it’s a common requirement judges make when granting bail.
Stay Away From Alcohol and Drugs
Depending on the nature of the crime committed, the judge will also sometimes require the person who was arrested to stay away from drugs or alcohol and may require screenings as a condition of release. These screenings can sometimes be set up on a regular basis, but other times, you may be required to arrive at a testing center within a certain amount of time to be tested.
Stick to a Specific Curfew
Some judges may also find it necessary to set a curfew when releasing a person on bail. If this happens, you may be required to check in at certain times. In some instances, ankle monitors are used to track both your whereabouts and ensure that you are where you need to be when your curfew starts.
And Several Others Depending On Your Situation
Other common conditions for bail include not possessing weapons, staying away from certain people, and not visiting certain places. Although we’ve covered several conditions that may need to be met, the judge may set specific ones for your situation.
