One of the things many people wonder after their arraignment is if they are required to make bail. The short and sweet answer is no.
While most people opt to not make bail for financial reasons, there are some compelling reasons some people choose to remain in jail while they wait for the conclusion of their case. These reasons can include the following:
- They have nowhere to go.
- They are worried about their ability to stick to the terms of their bail and feel that remaining in jail is the best way to stay out of trouble.
- They like the idea that they can use the time they are in jail waiting for the resolution of their case as time served once the judge sentences them.
- They do not know they can call a bail bonds to post bail.
