What to Expect at a Bail Heaing

The Crown Attorney will present the allegations against the accused person. The Crown may choose to present evidence by calling a witness, such as a police officer with direct knowledge of the investigation. The Defence lawyer will then present their evidence by calling a witness to testify. The witness is either the accused or a surety, or both. The purpose of the defence is to present evidence to the court that the accused will obey their bail conditions if they are released, which may be supervised by a surety.

Our Lawyers represent clients for Bail Hearings



A surety is someone who agrees to be responsible for an accused person who is charged with a crime and is in custody. A surety has to make sure the accused person attends all court dates and obeys all conditions placed on their bail at the hearing.


Who Can Be A Surety?

The judge or justice of the peace agrees to whether someone is a suitable surety. A surety should be at least 18 years of age; have no criminal record; and not be the complainant in the case. The court will looks at the surety's background, personal character and finances.

Does a Surety Have to Pay Money into Court?
