Recognizance of bail

If the Court decides to release the accused on bail, the Court will set out a number of conditions that the accused person has to abide by while on bail. Surety names and bail conditions will be set out in the official Court document called the recognizance of bail. The accused person and his or her sureties sign the recognizance of bail, which is also signed by the Justice of the Peace or the Judge. The recognizance of bail is attached to the information. If the accused breaches the conditions of his or her release set out in the recognizance of bail, he or she may be re-arrested and charged with another criminal offence for failing to comply with the bail conditions.
