What is Bail? How can I get someone out of jail?

When someone is arrested and booked into jail, a bail amount is set.  Bail is designed to ensure a person released from jail will return to court to face the charges.  The amount is usually determined from a standard scheduled amount for each crime.  The bail for most felonies can range from $10,000 and up.  To be released on bail, a person must either post the entire amount or a bond (usually posted by a bail bond company for a fee).
