Getting Out of Jail on Own Recognizance
The lawyers at William Moore Criminal Defense explain that the simplest way of getting released on bail is when the court allows the arrested person to be released on their own recognizance (R.O.R.) The R.O.R. process requires that the person must sign a document that presents a written promise of the accused to show up in court as per the court’s requirements. Criminal lawyers may petition the court to allow this type of release even where more serious offenses are alleged by agreeing to special conditions such as an ankle monitor. The accused person may have to request for an O.R. release during the first appearance before the court. If the request is rejected, the person may ask to receive a lower bail amount.
