How to Get Out of Jail in Bexar County, Texas
When a person is arrested for a crime in Bexar County, Texas, the law enforcement officer files a probable cause affidavit with the court that outlines the criminal allegations. A Bexar County judge reviews the affidavit and checks the defendant’s criminal record before setting the amount required for bail. The type and seriousness of the alleged crime and the defendant’s prior arrest record influence the amount of bail required.
Bail for misdemeanor crimes in Bexar County can range from $500 for writing a bad check to $10,000 for domestic violence assault. Bail for a first offense DWI in San Antonio can be between $1,500-3,000. The amount can be higher, depending on the details of the DWI arrest.
