History of Bail
Bail in the United States grew out of the English legal tradition granting the accused the ability to offer property or monies to the court in order to secure temporary freedom while pending trial for their crime. Bail became more and more expensive as the years went by in order to cover the expenses of the court because the legal system became so complicated.
Furthermore, many people without the benefit of proper legal representation did not understand the complexities or did not fully comprehend how to regain their freedom.
Many people who could have been freed from custody instead sat in jail far longer than they needed to.
With this issue in mind the United States government passed the Bail
Reform Act of 1966. This legislation clarifies many area of the bail system, including what conditions require bail, who can receive bail, and how much the bail should be in relation to the crime. This Act was revised in 1984 to be even more comprehensive and provide more protections for people accused of crimes.
