FAQ: Does everyone have a right to bail?
For the most part the answer to that question is yes. Most everyone has a right to bail. The only time a person wouldn’t be eligible to bail out of one of the Santa Clara jails before their trial is if they have mitigating circumstances such as they are illegal in the country, the defendant has a special hold such a a parole or probation violation or the individual been charged with a capital offense. A capital crime is one that, if the defendant is found guilty, is punishable by death.
