Abstract

Maine's bail system allows people arrested for all but the most serious crimes to pay their bail and a $25 fee to a judicial officer known as a bail commissioner. There are no bail bondsmen or retainers for lawyers, and there is very little bureaucracy. The system appears to work, and even its critics concede it helps Maine avoid many of the abuses prevalent in other states. Details, related articles on Maine Pretrial Services and the different types of bail.
