Fundamental human right

Only two applications of bail can be made, as it each process will cost time-as applications as to be thoroughly examined to make sure that the right people have the right to bail and money-as lawyers and judges have to to be paid for the extra time that they would bneed to spend on the case and the court will assume if you have been refuse bail twice then there is a reason ,as bail is considered a serious matter and so the if the second appeal goes along with the first one then the judgement must be and so would just advise the defendant to wait until trial.

According to Home Office Statistics 12% of those bailed to appear at court fail to do so and nearly 25% of defendants commit an offence whilst on bail. However it is also argued that far too many people are refused bail, i. e. remanded into custody. Around 14,000 people are currently in British prisons awaiting trial, which is about 20% of the prison population. Of these people some will be found not guilty at their trial, and will not receive any compensation for the time they have spent on remand. Of those on remand who are found guilty at their trial statistics show around 60% are given non-custodial sentences!

The effect of remand on the defendant could be serious as it may effect their lives significantly so this is why granting bail is such an important issue. The suspect may become unemployed as the boss may not want to company to be associated with a thought to be criminal,as the current policy on bail that it usually given unless the defendant poses harm to the public. Also it may be difficult to get lawyers as they are less likely to want to represent someone who they would believe that there is a strong possibility that they are guilty.

Also thee refusal of bail may have a significant effect on the outcome of a trial since research shows that suspects retained in custody are more likely to plead guilty, to be convicted and to be imprisoned, than suspects who are granted bail. The advantages of bail for the defendant are that it allows them the right to remain free until the end of the trial period, which if they are innocent means they haven't had to endure any unwarranted jail time, and if they are guilty gives them that last few weeks, sometimes months with their friends and family before facing their punishment.

During the time of a trial it is extremely stressful and being imprisoned during it can make the experience ten times worse and make meetings with lawyer's a lot harder, jeopardising the case. There are some major financial disadvantages for the defendant, which if innocent proves an unwanted, unneeded and unjust waste of money. And if guilty may cause financial ruin to loved ones who just wanted to help Allowing a defendant to be released on bail, although maybe risky cuts the funding needed to detain them.

Prisoners have to fed and treated accordingly as the defendant have a fundamental human right that they are innocent until proven guilty and so should;d be treated better than a convicted criminal. These would include such things as getting more phone calls to family and friends ,the cost of one person isn't a lot but with thousands of people brought in each week it can cut a considerable amount of expenses. The major disadvantage that the state might face when granting bail is that the defendant may never come back, going on the run or fleeing the country.

Although they get paid the bail amount from sureties there may be a dangerous criminal on the loose. In the long run this may also waste government spending trying to track down the individual. Many feel it would be safer to keep everyone detained. The advantages for the government and police on remand is that it looks good on them that there are trying to keep the public safe and thuis giving them a good image,that advantage of remand on the defendant is that it may keep the public safe if the defendant ids considered to be dangerous harm.
