What Happens If I Don’t Post Bail?

If you do not post a bail due to lack of funds or any other reason you will have to remain in the custody till the entire trial period of the court case. Court may on its discretion release you on “own recognizance” that you would appear in the court when asked to. The deciding factor for a person to be released on “own recognizance” is absence of any previous criminal record or court appearance of the defendant whenever required without fail.
