Federal and California State Trial Courts Judicial Restrictions

Bail is money or pledge of property to the court, which may be refunded if you appear for trial. The 8th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States prohibits national and state judiciary from imposing harsh penalties on you as a criminal defendant. Excessive bail amounts cannot be imposed as the price of your pretrial release or as punishment if you are convicted of a crime.
