After an arrest in Wisconsin, it's common to wonder how soon you can get out on bail and what it will cost. However, not everyone who is arrested is granted bail.
Being granted bail is not guaranteed in Wisconsin.
Whether or not you are found eligible for bail will be up to the judge presiding over your initial court appearance, also called an arraignment.
After reviewing the charges you're facing and the details surrounding your arrest, the judge will take into account any prior criminal convictions on your record. The judge relies on this information, combined with a number of other factors, to decide whether or not to grant bail in your case.
