Pretrial Release: Federal Bail Reform Act

If you are arrested for a federal crime, the first thing you should do is contact a federal criminal lawyer because the federal criminal justice system is convoluted and often stringent in regard to bail and release.

Pretrial release under the Federal Bail Reform Act gives you four provisions for setting bail:

  1. To release you on personal/own recognizance or unsecured bond;
  2. To release you on conditions;
  3. To temporarily detain you to permit revocation of conditional release, deportation or exclusion; or
  4. To detain you.

 

Factors the judicial officer shall take into account when determining pretrial release are:

Federal Bail Reform Act
  • The nature and circumstances of the offense charged
  • The weight of the evidence
  • Your characteristics (community ties, criminal history, employment, family ties, financial resources, mental condition, etc.)
  • The nature and seriousness of the danger to any person or the community that would be posed by your release

 

Pretrial release: Released on own Recognizance or unsecured Bond

Pretrial release on personal recognizance or an unsecured appearance bond will not be granted if the court determines that such release will not reasonable assure your appearance in court or will endanger the safety of any other person or the community. Federal judges have been given broader discretion to detain a defendant if there is a concern for the safety of the community, which includes a foreign community and not just physical harm.
