Rhode Island Bail and Bond Proceedings Attorney
Rhode Island Bail and bond proceedings — The Eighth Amendment to the United States Constitution requires that bail not be excessive. This means that bail should not be used to raise money for the government or to punish a person for being suspected of committing a crime. The purpose of bail is to give an arrested person her freedom until she is convicted of a crime, and the amount of bail must be no more than is reasonably necessary to keep her from fleeing before a case is over. Before a person accused of a crime is released from jail, the judge ordinarily imposes cash bail or a bond signed by the accused to secure her presence at future court proceedings, including the trial. Many judges set an impossibly high bail in particular types of cases, such as those involving drugs, to keep a suspect in jail until the trial is over.
