If you’ve been charged with a criminal offence and are awaiting trial, you may be eligible for bail. If you’re out on bail, you do not have to await trial in prison, as long as you attend court and follow other conditions. When you are granted bail, you are often asked to promise an amount of money that becomes forfeit to the court if you do not comply with bail conditions. For more serious offences, we may need to convince the court that you will follow the conditions if released.

What are bail conditions?
Conditions for bail can vary from crime to crime. All bail conditions include a duty to attend all appropriate court dates. Other conditions could include remaining in a certain area, not contacting certain individuals, and not possessing weapons.
