Many people who are not willing or able to come up with bail money on their own seek the services of bail bondsmen, who post (pay) bail for a fee.

Most people arrested in Maryland have the opportunity to "post bail."  Posting bail allows the accused to remain free until trial and any future hearings. After a person has been arrested and completed the booking process, the individual appears before a commissioner for a bail to be set.  In Baltimore County, the person arrested then appears before a judge in the Towson District Court to determine the amount of bail.  However, as soon as a bail is set by a commissioner, a person can "post bail" and be released.  That person does not have to wait for a bail review hearing to "make bail" in Maryland.
If the crime is relatively minor in Maryland, the person has no prior record, or if the District Court Judge believes that the accused is unlikely to flee, he may be released "on his own recognizance (ROR)." In this case, no bail is required in Maryland and the person must appear for trial.
If you are in need of a bail lawyer in Maryland, contact our office immediately at 410.288.2900.  The longer you wait, the longer the loved one will spend incarcerated pending their trial.  In Maryland District Court cases are set months after the arrest and Circuit Court could be up to six months before trial.
