bail

If you are released from custody after a bail hearing it means that you have been given bail. Bail is also known as judicial interim release. This means that the Court is satisfied that if they release you, you will not commit crime, you will show up to your court dates and you will follow all the rules the court gives you while your case is ongoing.

If you are not released after a bail hearing you will be held in custody until your case is over or until you are released from custody on a bail review.
