What to Know about Bail Applications

If you get into trouble and are arrested by the police, you may be granted bail. This only happens if you have not committed a crime of violence and the police think you will not re-offend in any way. If you have contacted a criminal law firm such as PCLB Criminal Lawyers they will most likely apply for bail on your behalf.

In some cases the police will let you go after you’ve been charged without any need for bail. However, you must agree to attend court on the date set, whether you get out on bail or not. There are two types of bail; police bail and court bail.
