Am I Eligible?
Judges look at the criminal past of a person to decide whether or not the person is entitled to bail bond. Those with a criminal history (especially if the crime committed in the past was the same), those who failed to show up in court before, or those who are likely to repeat the offense may be denied bail. Also, a judge may decide not to offer bail if he believes that the accused is likely to flee or to pose a danger to society or to himself in the case that he is released. Minors are often released to their parents and very rarely get a bail imposed on them.
