Bail has always been part of the common law system. In NSW, they have based their concept from the Statue of Westminster I (1275), where there are different categories that separates who are to be bailed or refused bail, which had become part of the Bail Act 1978 (NSW) and was enforced from March 1980. Bail Act 2013 (NSW) is the only other law that replaced Bail Act 1978 (NSW), but was amended by Bail Amendment Act 2014 (NSW), which is the final replacement coming into full effect in 28th January 2015.
The Canadian Criminal Court system uses bail, plea bargaining and legal aid as way to improve prison overcrowding, faster process of cases and equality of all participants. Bail is the temporary release of someone charged with a crime when waiting his/her trials. It is mostly granted to the accused who do not have a criminal record. The defendant is released on the condition that they will not contact the victim nor their family. Furthermore, they must show up to their court date. In Canada, we hold up to the “Proven until guilty” statement, which is basically receiving bail. This is one of the many reason that Canada does not have overflowing jails. We would not have the space to put everyone awaiting trial to be placed in prisons. Similarly, plea bargaining not only lets us evade cramped jail cells but also keeps courts from be overcrowded.
The procedure of the bail system functions differently based on the extent of a case, whether it is defined as a violent or non-violent crime. After an arrest the time spent in jail, varies on the offenders ability to pay the amount the judge sets for bail, as well as on the extent of the crime committed. The offender can be easily released from custody after paying the bail through either personal funds or through a bondsman. As the process seems easy to say, it actually becomes a financial burden to the offender, depending on their economic status. In desperation, those who do not have an option of paying bail, tend to pledge guilty whether innocent or not, to be released from custody as soon as possible. Even after being released, offenders are required to follow certain conditions that are set by the judge, to assure they will appear to their designated hearing date.
On my court visitation I observed a breach of DVO and bail conditions case, at the Beenleigh Magistrates Court, on Tuesday 15th. The Beenleigh Magistrate sits on the bottom of the Australian legal hierarchy of courts. Most criminal and some civil cases are first heard here. The purpose of this court is if an individual is charged with a criminal offence, they must be brought before the Magistrates Court. The role and responsibilities of the court personnel, is to decide if there is enough evidence required for
When a family member or close friend goes to jail, the remaining loved ones will want to help with the bail bonds process. Unfortunately, most people don't have a lot of experience with the process so it can be overwhelming, confusing and a touch frightening for all parties involved.
Bail bond is an insurance policy that gives a defendant incentive to show up for court appearances. If a defendant fails to show, that individual forfeits the collateral that was put up for their release. The Eighth Amendment forbids the use of excessive bail (U.S. Const. amend. VIII). This does not mean that every defendant will be eligible. For particularly dangerous offenses, bail can be denied for reasons of safety. If a defendant has been known to not show up for court proceedings, the judge may also deny bail for this reason. Even with the protection of the Eighth Amendment, many defendants, especially those of low-income, are unable to afford bail.

The Interstate Agreement on Detainers (IAD) is a congressionally approved interstate compact among 48 states, the District of Columbia, and United States which provides for the temporary transfer of prisoners who are wanted by other states for trial on criminal charges. Ohio adopted this federal law in 1969, and codified its provisions in O.R.C. 2963.30. The IAD only applies to those jurisdictions which have adopted it , and the United State Supreme Court held in United State v. Mauro , that IAD provisions apply only after a detainer has been lodged against a prisoner with the records personnel of the institution where he is incarcerated. This position has been consistently upheld in Ohio. The 10th District Ohio Court of Appeals cited Mauro
The website, NCJRS, was important to my research for the fact that the website gave me more information about dual arrest laws. I needed to be able to be informed and to inform the reader over dual arrest laws to prove that some laws are supposed to be in effect to prevent abusers from getting away with domestic violence. I needed to know if laws were present that were like the dual arrest laws to an extent. If I would have never known about this law, I would have never known there were laws present that help corruption improve. The dual arrest laws can help improve corruption because if both of the individuals are arrested, then it will be known that there is a problem and the law enforcement will hopefully be able to determine who the abuser is.
Discretion of the Court is the system of the court that governs individuals those who are charged for committing crimes, examine the time of their trial and other during major purposes of trial.

Dobb, who is part of the Centre of Criminology at the University of Toronto, collided to examine the gender treatment with in youths under the bail court system. Their examination consisted of 279 bail cases offered by a court in Toronto, through the extent of five years.

This article offers a great perspective and information between the different treatments females and male youth encounter, when being held for bail. Some of the differences
In conclusion, since the US government argued stating that the Federal courts had no jurisdiction to hear the case since the prisoners were not American citizens and they were still being held in territory over which the United States did not have sovereignty. The lease gives the United States exclusive and indefinite control over the area, and the defendants are subject to indefinite detention without a trial or hearing by any tribunal. The US Government was at war with the Terrorists and necessary measures needed to be taken in order to protect other people from potential harm. Therefore, let the government deal with those captives without the involvement of the courts system.
