What is pre-trial release?

A pre-trial release is when a defendant is released before a trial. It is granted in exchange for a bond with the court in the amount set by the judge called bail or without a bond called released on their own recognizance. Failing to appear when on pre-trial release can result in additional charges, increased bail, and loss of any amount paid to the court or of collateral provided to a bail bond company.
