Each county has its own criteria as to the pre-trial release (own recognizance) of prisoners, which area of the government is responsible for the Own Recognizance (OR) Department (judge, sheriff, clerk of the court, etc.) and even how the budget (whether it is the sheriff’s budget, or the county clerk’s, or the court’s) is handled. Generally, Own Recognizance is looking for the same thing we are, that is, responsible, employed people that promise they will return to court on time. The level of effort in the qualification of the prisoner is set by each individual governing body, and is not set by any universal code.
Anytime a defendant is released on their own recognizance it is important to remember that it is a privilege that should not be taken lightly. Make sure that you show up to court for every court date so that a warrant is not issued for your failing to appear in court.
