The criminal procedure includes arrest, booking, arraignment, bail, preliminary hearing, trial, sentencing, probation, and, potentially, an appeal.

Bail guarantees that you’ll attend future court appearances; it allows for your conditional release from custody after an arrest. A judge determines bail amounts during the arraignment and often requires the assistance of bail bond companies to post bail. These companies typically charge a premium (usually 10 percent) for their service. If you fail to appear in court as promised, the bail bond company may employ a bounty hunter to locate you. Understanding the Texas bail process and its intricacies is another area where the counsel of a seasoned criminal defense attorney becomes invaluable.
