Cash Bail is when the accused person pays the set bail in cash. A Surety Bond, which is also known as a bail bond, is used when the person cannot afford to pay the whole amount in cash and therefore pays a percentage of the bail and bondsmen takes care of the rest. This type of bail typically requires a co-signor. A release on citation means that the offender was not booked at a jail; rather, they are given a citation with a date and time which they must appear in court. Release on own personal recognizance means that the judge releases the individual with no bail and that individual is responsible for showing up to any and all future court dates. Property bond is when an individual uses property to be released from jail, and normally the court gets a lien on the property for the amount of the bail.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
