Skipping bail can pose a risk to families
from The Garden Island
The severity of a criminal charge, whether a felony or a misdemeanor, will determine how the court releases someone on his or her own recognizance, grants supervised or conditional release and the amount of bail. Hawaii Revised Statutes defines bailable offenses as serious crimes, and bail may be denied if the court determines an unacceptable level of risk that defendants would flee, attempt to obstruct justice in their case, present a danger to themselves and the community or engage in illegal activity.
