What is bail?Hands protruding from jail cell

Bail is when someone is in jail and money is posted for their release. When an individual is arrested in Las Vegas, Clark County or Henderson, they will be allowed a bail hearing that will determine whether the defendant will be entitled to bail based on various factors. If the court analyzes the severity of the crime, sees that the defendant will not be considered a danger to society and there is no flight risk, the defendant will likely be able to make bail.

Afterwards, if the defendant does not show for their scheduled court date, they will forfeit their bail.
