No, bail is not always granted. Whether or not bail is given depends on various factors, including the severity of the crime, the defendant’s criminal history, and the risk of flight posed by the defendant.
In some cases, bail may be denied entirely if the defendant is considered a flight risk or a danger to the community. Additionally, if the defendant cannot afford the required bail amount, they may be jailed until their trial.
The decision to grant or deny bail is made by a judge, who will consider various factors before making a decision. While bail can be an effective tool for ensuring that defendants show up to court, it is not a right, and it is up to the judge to decide whether or not to grant bail in each case.
