THE PURPOSE OF
BAIL BONDS in ga
 


In Georgia, as well as the rest of the United States, the purpose of a pretrial bond is “to prevent punishment before a conviction and to secure the appearance of the person in court for trial.” The 8th Amendment to the United States Constitution and Paragraph XVII of Article I, Section I of the Georgia Constitution 1983 prohibit excessive bail for criminal cases. The courts have held that excessive bail is tantamount to refusing bail. This does not mean, however, that all persons are guaranteed a bond that they can afford or even that a bond will even be granted. These situations will be discussed later.
