Although being able to post a bail bond is a constitutional right, bail can be denied in certain situations. If a person is deemed to be a flight risk, the judge chooses to keep them in jail until their case goes to trial. This normally occurs when the defendant does not live locally or is from another country. Bail can also be denied due to the severity of the crime. A person who is accused of capital murder is more likely to be denied bail simply because of the seriousness of the crime. Another reason for the judge to withhold bail is the fear that the defendant will harm himself or others if they are allowed to leave the jail.
