If you are charged with a Federal crime, such as armed bank robbery or a drug trafficking offense, you will need to secure a federal bail bond to secure your release from jail until your trial date. This will require an appearance before a judge to determine if bail will be permitted.
A Federal district court judge will then set the amount of your bail, which tends to be much higher than that required for State level offenses. Additionally, the fee for your bond may be more expensive due to the risk and complexity related to the federal bail bond, and you may need to provide collateral to secure the bail bond.
There are nearly 4,500 crimes which can be prosecuted federally, including some of the following:
- Transporting illegal drugs across state lines
- Customs violations
- Tax evasion, tax fraud, wire fraud, mail fraud
- Organized crime
Scrutiny of Federal Bail Bonds
Federal judges often require a second bail hearing before you are released from custody. The purpose of the hearing is to verify you obtained the funds for your bail legitimately and not through criminal means, which is common in drug trafficking cases.
In some cases, the defendant is released on bail with restrictions. This type of release may prohibit travel, require mandatory drug and/or alcohol testing, require the defendant to retain/seek employment, and require mandatory psychological, psychiatric or other medical testing.
Due the intense scrutiny involved with posting bail in the Federal courts, most experts recommend securing funds for your bail through a bail bondsman to avoid any unwarranted suspicion.
Cost of Federal Bail
Federal bail bonds are more costly because they require more work and are considered higher risk. Typically, the standard premium charged is 15% of the total bail amount. For example, if federal bail is set at $100,000, you will need to pay “The King” $15,000 for services rendered.
