Knowing your bail options helps you better understand how bail bonds work in Pennsylvania. You should first explore Release On Recognizance (ROR), which means you will be released from jail for no fee. The court system views you as a low risk individual that committed a small offense and therefore trusts you to obey Pennsylvania law upon release while also being confident that you will be present for all court dates. The other free bail options in Pennsylvania are ‘Release on Non-monetary Conditions’ and ‘Release on Unsecured Bail Bond’. Non-monetary conditions means that you will be released from a Pennsylvania jail with no money to pay but the court may put other conditions in place as part of your release agreement, such as drug testing, monitoring device, or phone/in-person check-ins. Release on Unsecured Bail Bond means that you will not have to pay anything to be released, however you will be held liable for the full bail bond amount if you do not meet all requirements of your release, like not attending court dates as expected.

Other means of release involve paying a fee for a bail bondsman or paying the bail bond in full through cash or property. Upon arrest anywhere in the state of Pennsylvania, a person is usually processed at the local county jail. To be released from jail, several steps must occur, including being booked and posting bail. When the bail bond amount is confirmed, a bail bond agent comes to post the bond at the local jail. Now the release process begins and typically can take anywhere from one to two hours to complete.

How much is bail in Pennsylvania?

Individuals should ask the question of “How much does a bail bond cost?” so they understand what costs are associated with bail. In Pennsylvania, bail bonds through a bondsman will cost you 10% for the first $100 and up to 5% for each additional $100. There are a few other bail bond fees that are not included in this amount like the judgement fees that range between $30 and $50 depending on the county in Pennsylvania.

Make sure to check with your bail bondsman on any other contractual rules outside of bail bond fees – like tracking devices, check-ins, travel rules outside of the state of Pennsylvania, and any drug or alcohol checks. While these bail bond stipulations are not actual direct money costs, they do take up your time from school and work and increase your risk of not meeting your release obligations.
