Released on Your Own Recognizance

If you have been charged with a crime, you may be wondering whether you will be able to pay a bond to get out of jail. In such a case, you may be able to obtain a release on your own recognizance. A release on your own recognizance (or personal recognizance) is a written promise signed by the defendant promising that they will show up for future court appearances and not engage in illegal activity while out on release on their own recognizance.
