An individual will be released from custody if the court is satisfied of 3 conditions:
The person will come to court as directed
There is not a substantial risk to the community that the person will commit further offences
The community will not be offended if the person is released
Sureties A surety is like a jail guard for an accused in the community. If you want to be a surety, it is important that you understand the role and responsibilities. Picking a suitable surety can make the difference between a person being released into the community or being held in custody until trial. You can find more information about being a surety here.
Bail Variations Bail conditions can be changed with prior approval of the court. This can be done byway of a bail variation request.
