Committee Introduction

   In accordance with section 5702 of the Judicial Code, 42 Pa.C.S. § 5702, which provides that ''all matters relating to the fixing, posting, forfeiting, exoneration, and distribution of bail and recognizances shall be governed by general rules,'' the rules in this Chapter were implemented to govern the procedures for the release of a defendant from custody pending the full and final disposition of the defendant's case.

   These rules were reorganized and amended in 1995. For the most part, the new rules incorporate the same procedures that were established under the former rules. The changes encourage the use of nonmonetary conditions of release on bail. See Rules 4003, 4005, 4006, and 4007. The bail authority, as defined in Rule 3, should tailor any conditions of release on bail to the individual defendant.

   The procedures in this Chapter are divided into four parts: procedures for pre-verdict release (Rules 4001--4008), procedures for post-verdict release (Rule 4009), general procedures for all bail cases (Rules 4010--4016), and bail procedures for material witnesses (Rule 4017). The pre-verdict procedures encompass all stages of the criminal process from the initiation of criminal proceedings through trial until a finding as to guilt. The post- verdict procedures pertain to all stages after verdict, both before and after sentencing, while jurisdiction remains with the court of common pleas. The general procedures govern all bail cases during all stages of the criminal process. Part IV sets forth the special procedures that may be utilized to ensure the appearance of a material witness.
