After the initial court appearancewhenthe bail is set, the bail will usuallybeposted and the defendant will be released from jail. Atthatinitial court arraignment, the court will set anotherfollow-update for a conference or for a hearing.
Also, how long does it take to get out of jail after posting bail? A: Anywhere from 2-6 hours. With great certainty, though, we can say thatmostdefendants are released within 2-6 hours of postingbondfrom the Austin jail or Georgetown jail.
