A bail is not a get out of jail free card however because the person who is currently being accused still has to show up at their trial otherwise they will lose their bail or they may even have bounty hunters coming for them, so if you post bail it is important that you make sure you appear at your trial on time. If the accused also do not show up for their trial, the crime of failing to appear at a trial will be added to their list of other crimes and if they are convicted that is just more time behind the bars.
