In any criminal case, one of the first issues to arise is regarding bail. A judge can take one of several actions regarding bail in your case. He or she can detain you, release you without any conditions or allow to be released with certain conditions. The judge will make a decision about whether your release is believed to endanger the safety of another or the community as a whole. The court will also consider releasing you when it is certain that you are not a flight risk. These factors impact all types of federal crimes including conspiracy, internet sex crimes, drug offenses, gun violations, white collar crimes and others.
