Release Without Bail

An “O.R.” release means that the court agrees to let you out of custody on your own recognizance without the need to post bail.


Judges have a great deal of discretion in deciding whether to require bail or to release a defendant on his or her own recognizance.  Some of the factors that are looked at include ties to the community, legal history, employment and support of the community.
